(PRESS RELEASE)_National Sundae day is coming up on Saturday, November 11th. Plan to celebrate at one of these spots around Palm Beach County.
One origin story of the ice cream sundae claims that the treat was invented in Ithaca, New York in 1892. However, other accounts insist that the sundae was born in Two Rivers, Wisconsin when Edward Berners served the first sundae in 1891. According to this story, customer George Hallauer ordered an ice cream soda on a Sunday, however, ordinances at the time prohibited the sale of ice cream sodas on the Sabbath. Thus, Edward compromised, serving him the ice cream dish, but replacing the soda with sauces and toppings.
While we aren’t certain on the sundae’s origin, we do know that an ice cream sundae typically consists of a few scoops of ice cream, syrups or sauces, and toppings. However, these sweet local spots each offer a unique version of the traditional sundae. For a cool and creamy celebration, make sure to visit one, or more, of these locations on National Sundae Day!
