What Ice Cream Looks (and Tastes) Like Around the World
No matter what your dessert preference is, we bet you like ice cream. In the United States, kids are hypnotized by the carefree jingle of the ice cream man’s truck, and as adults, we wait in line for hours at artisanal ice cream parlors where flavors resemble dinner more than dessert. Ice cream has a fascinating backstory. Some hypothesize that Marco Polo brought back the recipe the Far East. Others believe Catherine de’ Medici introduced ice cream to France when she married King Henry II. It was served at their wedding feast in Florence and he was hooked from then on.
