Celebrate National Ice Cream Soda Day with Some Fizzy History!
Let’s celebrate the frothy world of ice cream soda on National Ice Cream Soda Day. It’s the sweet and fizzy concoction that has captured our stomachs and kept dentists in business for more than a century.
Picture this: It’s the late 1800s. A pharmacist named Robert McCay Green decides to toss some ice cream into his soda mix.
And thanks to science, maybe a mistake or a weird hunger pang – the ice cream soda is born!
Either way, we owe him a debt of gratitude.
Thanks, Mr. Green, for creating a drink that brings joy and brain freezes to the masses.
But wait, there’s more to the story:
Fred Sanders of Detroit also claims to be the mastermind behind this icy wonder.
Maybe it was a friendly competition between Green and Sanders. Who knows? Who cares! These legends birthed a classic treat.
The bubbly tale of ice cream soda
Whether you believe it was Green or Sanders who first unleashed this frozen marvel, one thing’s for sure: ice cream soda remains a beloved treat that continues to quench our thirst and leave us with sticky fingers.
So, on National Ice Cream Soda Day, explore Boston’s finest soda fountains, and indulge in the glorious fusion of ice cream and carbonation.
Your taste buds will thank you, and your dentist will curse you. Enjoy!
