Celebrate Ice Cream Soda Day in Style

Today is Ice Cream Soda day!

Ice Cream Soda was invented in 1874 by Robert McCay Green in Philadelphia. The traditional story is that, on a particularly hot day, Mr. Green ran out of cold ice for the flavored drinks he was selling and used vanilla ice cream instead, thus inventing a new drink.

In 1910, Mr. Green sang a different tune, claiming the Ice Cream Soda was not invented by accident, but rather that he had planned to create a new treat to attract customers away from another vendor who had a fancier, bigger soda fountain. Green even instructed that "Originator of the Ice Cream Soda" was to be engraved on his tombstone in his will.

Regardless of its origins, the beverage quickly became very popular, and we’ve got some unique Ice Cream Soda Recipes for you to enjoy while celebrating today!
