Everyone loves ice cream. We all know ice cream as a frozen dessert. Ice cream is usually made from dairy products, like: milk and cream. Ice cream often combined with fruit or other ingredients and various flavors. Most ice cream Ice cream contains sugar and some are made with other sweeteners. Ice cream is good to be consumed at noon, especially on a hot day. Ice cream is good to be enjoyed a few hours after dinner or right before we go to bed, depending on the day. Most people agree if ice cream is a good snack to eat while watching TV. There has been a lot of controversy about what time of day is the best time to eat calories. Some say, as long as you’re eating your ice cream the right way you will do just fine and fun. Try eating it either in the morning or early afternoon while you are active if we are planning on making ice cream a daily treat. Or if we have a chance to consume this in the evening, try enjoying it after a good workout.

The benefits of eating ice cream

Many of us may not know that ice cream that we eat has a benefit for our health. Most of people may believe that eating ice cream will gain more weight. Ice cream is actually rich with calcium. As we know that calcium is good for our health since it can build up and help our bones in the body. Calcium is also good for pushing fat into the bloodstream where it is more likely to be burned up. Ice cream can help lower risks of disease such as colon cancer, high blood pressure, kidney stones and even keep the weight off. It’s good to lose and maintain weight. We can get all the benefits by consume dairy products in our diet. This can help us get rid of unwanted fat and keep them off.

The term of “ice cream” varies from one country to another. Such as: frozen yogurt, frozen custard, gelato, sorbet, etc. Better if we know the history of ice cream. I’ll describe below. Just keep on reading…..

The history of Ice cream

There are many version of the beginning of food which was then popular with the name of “Ice Cream”. The Roman Emperor Nero (37–68) who ordered to make a meal of snow on the mountaintops, served with fresh fruit on it. Another reference mentions that an ice cream brought from China to Europe by King Tang of Shang (618-97 BC). They found a method of the making ice and milk ingredients. As time passes, ice cream recipes developed into a luxury dish that can be eaten by the families of the fashionable Italian and French Royal Family. Marco Polo was believed brought the ice cream recipe to mainland of Europe and America. A number of American legends also served ice cream to their guests. Such as: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Dolly Madison, also Governor Bladen of Maryland in 1700.

Fact about ice cream:

  • Major breakthrough in the ice cream manufacture into basic ingredients that we know today, occurs when a mixture of ice mixed with salt. This method is useful to decrease, while controlling the temperature of ingredients. This breakthrough was strengthened by the discovery of the freezer which is made of wooden bucket with a pedal player.

  • Conello ice cream was found and popular the world since 1904.
  • Nancy Johnson, a woman from New England making a manual ice cream maker in 1846. In 1848, her invention was later patented by William G. Young as the "Johnson Patent Ice-Cream Freezer ".
  • Augustus Jackson, A candy maker from Philadelphia found the recipe and method of making ice cream in 1832.
  • The first ice cream parlor opened in New York City, in 1776.

Gelato

Gelato itself is the Italian word for ice cream and sorbet. Gelato like an ice cream which is made with cream, milk, various sugars, flavoring including fresh fruit and also nut purees. There’s little bit differences between ice cream and gelato. Ice cream can contain as much as 50 percent air, but Gelato contains about 25 to 30 percent air. Where ice cream is typically served frozen, gelato is typically served at a slightly warmer temperature. So, it's not quite completely frozen but still delicious. The good news is you can find a little bit fat in gelato. Gelato is flavored with fresh fruit purees, cocoa, small confections, chocolate flakes, cookies, or biscuits. Another Gelato which is made with fresh fruit, sugar, and water and without dairy ingredients is called sorbet.

Dondurma

It’s the “real” ice cream from Turkish. Dondurma usually made from milk, sugar, salep, and mastic. It is believed came from the Turkish region of Kahramanmaraş. Dondurma is also known as Maraş Ice Cream. We can easily find this ice cream from the street vendor's carts. Vendors often tease the customer with his stick before giving the ice cream cone to the customer. He rotates his stick while making a joke, even the cone suddenly disappeared. This is the main attractions from the vendor. But, how about the taste of Dondurma? the taste was so smooth and creamy, but not too sweet. The most popular flavor in Turkey is plain. The original taste came from the goat milk. From the statistical data shows that the average rate of ice cream consumption in Turkey was 2.8 liters per person per year in 2010.

Matcha (Green Tea) Ice Cream

Green tea ice cream is a very popular ice cream flavor in Japan and other parts of East Asia. Matcha itself comes from a specific type of green tea used in the Japanese tea ceremony, called “chado” or “The Way of Tea”. Matcha is bright green in color and is made by finely grinding a very high quality tea called Gyokuro (pronounced gil-KUR-oh).

Kulfi is a popular ice cream from the Indian Subcontinent. We can find this ice cream throughout neighboring countries in South Asia, Burma (Myanmar), and even the Middle East. With the outer appearance like an ice cream, but it is denser and creamier. There are various flavors, such as: raspberry, rose, mango, cardamom, saffron, pistachio and modern flavors like orange, apple, strawberry, peanut, and avocado. I heard that kulfi takes a longer time to melt than Western ice-cream.

Among the flavors you mentioned here, I love matcha the best. It's taste is so delicate, very fine, leaves me wanting for more scoops. About weird ice cream flavors, allow me to add basashi ice cream flavor. Basashi is the Japanese word for horse meat. As its name suggests, a basashi ice cream tastes like horse meat :)

      What an amazing hub all about ice cream. Think I will pass on the octopus ice cream and that $1,000 price tag for the most expensive cup of ice cream...crazy! Years ago when I would come home from college, my Dad would stock up on several types of ice cream for a treat. Butter pecan was always one and was a favorite of his and mine. I seldom keep it in the house anymore since my mother is gone. She loved ice cream...just about any and all flavors. I take that back...never heard of octapus, green tea and some of the other unusual flavors. Ha! Up, useful and interesting votes!

      Dear friend, drbj. Good to see you here and I know that you love ice cream as well. I found the data from www.mapsofworld.com. Actually I have the same feeling with you about these countries. But if we talk about favorite, there's no season or weather if we "love" something. This time we talk about "ice cream" though they are cold countries, right.

      Wow...coffee flavor with chocolate chips. You have high class taste of ice cream. Keep it up. Have a good day. Cheers...

      What a comprehensive hub about ice cream, pras - it's one of your best. Of course, I'm slightly prejudiced since I love ice cream. It makes a wonderful dessert to end the day. My favorite flavor is mocha chip - that's a coffee flavor with chocolate chips. Ummmmmmm!

      I noticed something strange about your list of the ten countries that are the largest ice cream consumers in the world. Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Canada all have some of the coldest climates in the world. Doesn't it seem peculiar that so much ice cream is consumed in such cold countries? Just wonderin'. Great hub my friend. Voted up!
