Ice cream has been around so long that no one even thinks about where it came from. Here in the states you can find it at almost every little kids birth day party. You would not believe these frozen type treats go all the way back to Alexander the Great. Just like past noodles the Chinese are credited with leading us to the modern invention. Basically Marco Polo brought all kinds of goodies back from his travels and the Italians integrated them into their culture. France really made it popular and made it with eggs. Then here in the US we removed the eggs and the rest is history!
