I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream (soda)! Today is National Ice Cream Soda Day and what better way to enjoy this hot, first day of summer than with a cold, creamy ice cream soda.
Dating all the way back to 1874, ice cream sodas were first invented by Robert Green, who, as legend has it, ran out of cream for the flavored soda he was making. With nothing left but some vanilla ice cream, Green decided to add it to the drink instead – and voila, the ice cream soda was born!
Sounds delicious, right? If you’re in the mood for a tasty treat, just put a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a tall glass and pour chilled 7-Up gently down the side. Serve with a long spoon and straw, and slurp away this hot, hot summer day. Yum!
