A Cool Treat

 



In honor of Summer's arrival
in four days and the GRAND
OPENING of Baskin Robbins
here in our fair city, today's
Trivia is about....can you
guess??

Ice Cream!

A variation of ice cream
was first recorded around
200 BC.

Ice cream as we know it
was invented in the 1600's
by the chef of Charles the
1st of England.

The "walk away" cone made
it's debut at the 1904 St.
Louis World's Fair.

According to August issue of
Midwest Living--a vendor at
the 1904  St. Louis World's
Fair ran out of cones so
another vendor nearby who
was selling waffles, began
rolling them up in a cone
shape and ice cream was
put in them.

Last night we paid a visit
to our new ice cream store
and I had a cone with
Chocolate Chocolate Chip-
no sugar added and Mr. Ken
enjoyed a cone with Black
Walnut.

What is your favorite ice
cream flavor?

Do you prefer hard or soft
serve?

Another added bonus for us
here in the Kansas City area
is that the Belfonte Ice Cream
is made right here! So when we
are in the grocery store we can
purchase ice cream right here!

Celebrate SUMMER and enjoy
a dip OR get wild and have
TWO!!!  :)

  3. How lucky are you to be getting a BR! They have all closed down around us. Their pralines & cream is the best.

  7. Lucky you! I love ice cream and BR, but sadly it has closed here. My fave is about any ice cream, esp. if it has cherries in it.
