Sundae history

Although the earliest known record of an ice cream sundae is an Ithaca, NY advertisement, the dessert's source is still debated. The ice cream treat was spelled with the word "today" in the Ithaca Daily Journal's October 5, 1892 ad – Sunday.

Druggist Edward Berners served the first ice cream sundae in 1881, according to Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Customer George Hallauer ordered an ice cream soda on a Sunday, according to the article. On the Sabbath, the selling of ice cream sodas was outlawed by law. Berners came up with a compromise, despite this. He served the ice cream in a dish without the soda.

In addition,, he topped it with chocolate syrup. Given the time, he called it a Sundae. Berners was 18 at the time when the tale takes place, which is one of the story's most interesting finds.

Reverend John M. Scott stops to order a bowl of ice cream at Platt & Colt Pharmacy in 1892, where Reverend John M. Scott stops to order a bowl of ice cream. When Chester Platt, the cream's maker, began making the ice cream for his client, he didn't stop at just a few scoops of vanilla. Platt drizzled cherry syrup over the ice cream and topped them with a vibrant red, candied cherry. The dessert looked and tasted so delectable that it warranted its own name. Since the day was Sunday, it was named for the day it was established. In addition to an advertisement for a Cherry Sunday, Ithaca has historical evidence to back up the tale.
