Google Doodle Celebrates 119th Anniversary of the First Documented Ice Cream Sundae

Most of us are used to having desserts after finishing the main meal. It seems that even if we are already full; we still crave for something sweet. We either eat cakes, chocolates or ice cream as desserts.
And it’s undeniable that one of the most often eats ice cream desserts of all people of all-time is the ice cream sundae. It is actually next to banana split. Not only young ones love it but also those that are young at heart.

An ice cream sundae contains a scoop of ice cream with syrup on top and an additional topping like cherry, sprinkles, tiny bits of marshmallows and nuts. Original flavor was a vanilla ice cream sundae with flavored sauce, whipped cream and a cherry on top. Nowadays, there are lots of types of sundaes that you can actually buy — there are strawberry sundaes, caramel sundae and so many others — but my favorite would always be the “chocolate sundae”. I ♥ chocolate sundae a lot! ;)

According to the history, there are lots of different states who claims that sundae originated in their place. These states include Two Rivers, Wisconsin; Plainfield, Illinois; Evanston, Illinois, New York City, Ithaca, New York; Buffalo, New York and Cleveland, Ohio and Buffalo. With all the claiming of the origin of the ice cream sundae, no one could probably say where it was really originated.

Some people say that there used to be a law in the past that prohibits the selling of ice cream sodas on Sunday, because they are sinful. So, the name “sundae” was claimed to be formed as a response to this law.

In celebration for the 119th Anniversary of the First Documented Ice Cream Sundae, Google is featuring a Google Doodle on its homepage with a 2-scoop of ice cream that represents the two “O”s in the word Google.
