Ice Cream with Chopsticks

The U.S. enjoys an average of 48 pints of ice cream per person, per year, more than any other country.

For those without the facility for chopsticks and ice cream, there is always the ice cream cone.


The ice cream cone’s invention is linked to the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis. An ice cream vendor reportedly didn’t have enough dishes to keep up with the demand, so he teamed up with a waffle vendor who rolled his waffles into cones!

Whether you use "eating ice cream with chopsticks" as a metaphor for a challenge or just like to savor your ice cream, today is the day.

The biggest ice cream sundae in history was made in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in 1988, and weighed in at over 24 tons.

See below for a video of the dance at the Cologne Scottish Country Dance Ball, Brauweiler Abbey, 2012.
