  Food Facts: Ice Cream is Chinese Food?
Wednesday, December 08, 2010

by Steven v. H. Shaffer

Did you know that Ice Cream is Chinese Food? That's right. The famous Italian explorer Marco Polo discovered the recipe for a dessert called “milk ice” while he was roaming around China. When he brought the recipe back with him, Europeans substituted cream for the milk (Europeans do love their cream) and appropriately called it “ice cream”. The rest, as they say, is history.


Frozen custard, a variation of ice cream, adds egg yolks to the popular cold dessert, providing a much smoother, creamier and richer flavor.


Other popular variations of ice cream include frozen yogurt, soft serve, and gelato.


Chappy's Deli serves FREE soft serve, frozen custard at our full service locations in Montgomery and Mt. Brook with the purchase of any meal.


We all clustered for the custard!
