Who invented raspberry ripple ice cream?
I’m not absolutely sure who invented raspberry ripple ice cream. After all, anyone can invent any flavor of ice cream. (I can’t forget my peach-raspberry-Heath Bar adventure) On the subject of regular ice cream, its origins are hard to determine. Marco Polo allegedly saw ice cream being made when he travelled to China and introduced the dish to Italy when he returned. There is no actual historical evidence to support this, though it had been invented by at least 1774, when a caterer from London advertised ice cream and other confections in a New York newspaper. In 1846, New Jersey’s Nancy Johnson invented a hand-cranked ice-cream machine, though she neglected to patent it. In Baltimore, Maryland,1851, Jacob Fussell began commercially producing ice cream.
There no define answer but here’s some information: It has often been said that the Chinese invented ice cream and that marco polo brought the idea to Europe in the thirteenth century. This is more myth than historical fact backed by evidence but it can be sated with some confidence that ice cream was invented in China in the first milenium. The process of freezing liquids by immersing them in a mixture of ice and salt, which react together to lower the temperature of the mixture below freezing point, was also invented in the distant past – it was first documented in the thirteenth century. This is how ice cream had to be made until the invention of the freezer in the twentieth century. A vessel containing ice and salt surrounds a container containing the ice cream mixture. The temperature in the ice and salt mix drops, freezing the container’s contents. To ensure it freezes evenly, it is generally stirred or rotated. Since the method of producing ice cream depended on a supply of ice,
