Because ice cream is so popular in (he United Sta'cs a great many people think it was "invented" here. But this isn't true. The first use of something resembling ice cream took place in Rome during the first century A.D. Nero, the emperor, had snow brought down from the mountains by swift. runners. Fruit juices and other flavorings were added to the snow, and the result, was a dish like modern fruit ices. At the end of the 13th century, when Marco Polo returned from his travels in Cathay, he brought with him a recipe for a dish whi r h contained milk in addition to the fruit juices and flavors. Recipes for ices spread from Italy to the rest of Europe in the 1500's.' Chefs were constantly experimenting with new combinations, and at some point cream and butter were addet! to the recipes for ice. The new dish was called cream ice. Gradually cream ice took the name it has today. Ice cream was probably introduced into the United States in the 1600's. By the end of that century there were many ice cream parlors i n New York. George Washington liked ice cream so much he had two ice cream freezers installed in his home at Mount Vernon. The development of the continuous freezer in the 1920's made the manufacture of ice cream very quick and economical, so people began to buy packaged ice cream instead of making it at home ice cream cones were first introduced in 1904 at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition held in St. Louis. * * * FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Jim: We're going to play Beethoven toni»ht.
