A Little History

Ice cream originated in the 4th century B.C. Roman Emperor Nero (A.D. 37-68) ordered ice to be brought from the mountains and combined with fruit toppings. King Tang (A.D. 618-97) of Shang, China had a method for creating ice and milk concoctions.

This famous treat was likely brought from China to Europe where recipes for ices, sherbets, and milk ices evolved. Later the dessert was imported to America and served for early American Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

In 1843, Nancy Johnson created the first ice cream machine. This frozen treat maker included a crank that mixed ingredients together so it would freeze smoothly. Then, making the treat was a long, tedious process; today, it's easy.
