Ice Cream History

According to Answers.com:

A famous American saying goes, "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!" Tom Carvel set up the first permanent ice-cream stand in 1934, when the truck from which he had been selling the frozen treat had a flat tire near a pottery store in New York. He sold his ice cream from that spot — off the back of his truck — for two years, until he finally bought the store in 1936 and turned it into an ice-cream parlor. That same year, he developed a formula for soft serve ice cream. In 1947, Carvel set up his first franchise, and, soon after, he ran a series of franchising seminars, nicknamed "Sundae School." Carvel was born on this date in 1906. Quote: "If you like ice cream, why stop at one scoop? Have two, have three. Too much is never enough." — Morris Lapidus
