Melting ice cream
Tom Carvel had a flat tire in 1934 in Hartsdale, New York, New York, on Memorial Day weekend. The businessman noticed his product was melting after pulling his ice cream truck into a parking lot. Carvel sold the softened ice cream to vacationers as they passed by. They loved the soft ice cream, surprisingly. The salesman was not lost on the prospect of a new dessert. Carvel could have a centralized location with soft ice cream instead of a roving ice cream truck.
Tom Carvel opened his first ice cream store on the same spot where his truck crashed down two years ago. Carvel invented a super low-temperature ice cream machine and created a new formula ice cream in the previous years.
It wasn't long before other companies began to pop up. The hard ice cream industry began to protest. Despite both products' common flavors, preparations, and pleasure, they were not alike. During the first years of soft ice cream's success, the Hard ice cream business saw a decrease in sales. Even the Minnesota legislature passed legislation prohibiting the selling (technically by law it was deemed to be ice milk) of soft-serve ice cream from a machine. It had to be sold pre-packaged in order to be successful. The legislation was later amended, but it was later amended.
