June 7 History Highlights
Chocolate Ice Cream Day
The history of chocolate is as old and rich as the flavor itself. The first frozen recipes were published in Naples, Italy back on 1693 by Antonio Latini’s “The Modern Steward.” Chocolate was one of the earliest flavors created during this time period before vanilla became popular ice cream favorite when it came to being turned into a dessert based drink like hot cocoa or coffee.
Chocolate ice cream has a long history in America, with records dating back to 1777, when ice cream maker Philip Lenzi announced that ice cream was officially available “almost every day”. It was not until the late nineteenth century that it became popular for all Americans and even more recently becoming available as an everyday dessert. Chocolate is one of the five most popular ice cream flavors in the United States and is second only to vanilla.
