This Day in History July 25, ????

Did you know that today is National Hot Fudge Sundae Day?  I have to admit, I did not.  As usual with "food holidays' such as these, the history of the day is rather sketchy.  What we do know is that most of the ice cream holidays tend to happen in the month of July.  Ice cream has been around and popular in this country since its inception.  Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson indulged in the decadent treat.  And the first ice cream shoppe in this country opened in New York in 1776.  

There are many different ways to make a hot fudge sundae.  I have always been partial to vanilla ice cream, hot fudge topping, peanuts, and whipped cream.  I would leave the maraschino cherry off--I don't like these on sundaes, as a rule.  But, of course, there is no right or wrong way to have a hot fudge sundae.  The most important thing is to enjoy your sundae!  And don't feel guilty.  After all, a hot fudge sundae contains 21% of your recommended daily allowance of calcium!
