it, but it is true.
THE HISTORY OF THE ICE CREAM
The ones who invented the
ice cream were the chinenses three thousand years ago.
Imagine that when the ice
cream appeared in China it was a mix of snow with fruit juice, similar
enough to the one that nowadays we know it as " raspadinha ".
And in Rome, capital of Italy,
the emperor Nero, ordered his slaves to look for snow in the mountains
in order to mix it with honey, fruit pulp or juices. The ice was kept in
deep wells built by the local people. That was 1900 years ago.
But today, in the whole world,
the ones who make the biggest number of ice creams are the Americans. It
was the United States, in the decade of 50's, that began the first production
in industrial scale.
In Brazil, the ice cream became
known in 1834, when two "Cariocas" merchants bought 217 tons of ice,
coming in a ship from North America, and they began to manufacture the
ice creams with Brazilian fruits.
There was no way of conserving the cold
ice cream; therefore he had to be taken right after being prepared. There
was an announcement informing the exact time of the production. The first
announcement that appeared it was in São Paulo, on July 04, 1878.
The announcement was like this: " Ice
creams - everyday at 3:00 p.m., in the Right Street number 44 ".
