Happy National Sundae Day ! !


A Brief History on Sundaes:
Founded By: The first sundae was produced in the year 1882 in Ithaca, New York. On a Sunday that year, Chester Platt of Platt & Colt Pharmacy served up the Reverend John M. Scott a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a champagne saucer topped with a cherry with cherry syrup on top. And the rest is history!

Later With the Name: Sonntag from Plainfield, Illinois created the dish “after the urgings of patrons to serve something different” naming it the “sonntag” after himself. Since Sonntag means Sunday in German, that name was translated to Sunday. Later the name was spelled sundae.

Chocolate Syrup: Ice cream sundaes, which was ice cream topped with a flavored syrup–were first referred to as a “soda-less soda.” C.C. Brown, a Los Angeles ice cream parlor, is credited for the introduction of the hot fudge sundae in the year 1906.

Why was soda banned on Sunday?
In the late 1800s, there was a “Blue Law on the books, making it illegal to sell a soda on Sunday. Some religious groups were against what they had called a “sucking soda,” feeling that this activity should be banned on the Sabbath day.

When: November 11th every year.
