Where did Ice Cream originally come from?

So there are many thoughts from historians about where Ice Cream first came from. History tells us that ice cream was originally credited to the Chinese and it was created around 200 BC when a milk and rice mixture was frozen by packing it into the snow.

The explorer, Marco Polo is popularly cited for having seen ice-creams being made during his trip to China and later introduced these to Italy when he returned.

Roman emperors are supposed to have sent slaves to mountain tops to bring back fresh snow which was then flavoured and served as an early form of ice-cream.

The King of England, Charles I, is suggested to have offered his personal chef £500 a year to keep his ice-cream recipe a secret from the rest of England.

Ice Cream sundaes were invented when in the late 19th century it became illegal to sell ice-cream sodas on a Sunday in the American town of Evanston. Local Traders then replaced the soda with syrup and called the dessert an “Ice Cream Sunday” to get around this problem.
