National Ice Cream Day History

On National Ice Cream Day, it is a good idea to invite friends and eat an ice cream. Before the development of modern refrigeration, ice was a luxury reserved for special occasions. Its production was difficult: ice was removed from lakes and ponds in winter and placed in holes in the ground. Many farmers and owners of agricultural land, including U.S. Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, removed and kept ice in these holes. Beginning in the 1820s, Frédéric Tudor of Boston developed a new business by exploiting natural New England ice cream to sell it all over the world.

The money spent on buying ice cream around the world each year corresponds to the amount of money that would be necessary to ensure the education of all the children and adolescents of the planet, notes the UN. The main importers of ice cream and other frozen foods in 2005 were the United Kingdom, France and Germany, followed by Spain, the Netherlands and Belgium. It often approaches or exceeds 10 liters per inhabitant and per year, mainly purchased in family format in countries with a good commercial distribution infrastructure.
