In the year 1935, our 32nd President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt, publicly confessed that he loved to eat ice cream at least once a day.
In 1790, George Washington spent about $200 for ice cream in one summer! (I wonder how much that would be today?)
In 1985 in Anaheim, California, the largest ice cream sundae was made with 4,667 gallons of ice cream, 7,000 pounds of toppings and measured 12 feet high!
The biggest ice cream sundae ever made was on July 24, 1988. It contained 20.27 tons of ice cream, 4.39 tons of syrup and 5.22 lbs of topping!
It takes 12 lbs of milk to make one gallon of ice cream.
In 1984, former President Ronald Reagan declared July as National Ice Cream Month.
