Google, the search engine giant celebrated the birthday of ice cream sundae in a special way. This was done to commemorate the 119th anniversary of the first time an ice cream was documented. And this they did through the Google Doodle.
On the homepage of Google there were two scoops of ice cream that represented the two 'O' of Google. When one clicked on the picture it showed "ice cream sundae”. It also included a link to a Wikipedia listing that went back to April 3, 1892. It was called the first documented sundae in the world.
For the first time, as the information showed in the online encyclopedia, the Cherry Sunday was made by Platt & Colt's soda fountain in Ithaca. Since then, ice cream sundaes have become a rage worldover and have become a favorite with the kids and adults alike.
While a lot of praise has gone into the first company that manufactured and sold ice cream sundae, since the first time it was discovered till present, a lot of big names have developed in this field. And the market is worth billions now.
A debate, however, started in 2006 when Ithaca and Two Rivers, Wisc raged a war with each other over the discovery of ice cream. It was a good-natured one so that publicity could be generated.
