“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” was a song you might remember from a popular television show featuring an over-joyed purple and green dinosaur.

That’s right, Barney. The song was written by Howard Johnson, Bill Moll, and Robert A.K King. It was aired in 1992 during the twenty-first episode.

Do you feel old now? That’s okay. You might feel better after knowing the first introduction of ice cream was in the late 16th century.

The first recorded use of the term was in 1672 by Ashmole and recorded among the dishes served at the Feast of St. George at Windsor in 1671 in the dish known as, “One Plate of Ice Cream .”(1)

There are different types of iced desserts like sorbet, gelato, sherbet, frozen yogurt, and ice cream. Unlike the others, ice cream is distinguished separately from the others by containing at least 10% milk fat and may/may not contain eggs.
