History of Ice cream:

The origin of ice cream dates back to 2500 years ago when people in ancient Persia used to make ice out of sweetened water, crush it, and serve it with various toppings and fruits to enjoy during the summer days. The custom of ice cream production reached the Roman and Greek empires where its mass productions were funded by royal and wealthy people.

Ice cream, what we know and enjoy today, acquired its form in the late 1600s at the hands of the Italians who incorporated milk into the recipe to make it all the more delectable and indulgent.
