TOP 4 ICE CREAM SHOPS For more, log onto W hat says "summer treat" better than yummy ice cream? Whether you prefer the creamy goodness of vanilla (as do the ma- jority of Americans) or you'd rather a gooey hot fudge sundae, your ice cream cravings are almost as old as America itself. Ice cream was first advertised in the U.S. in 1777 when confection- er Philip Lenzi announced his new product in the New York Gazette. It's also been reported that President George Washington spent about $200 on ice cream during the very hot summer of 1790. In 1813, Dolley Madison even served strawberry ice cream at White House for the ban- quet that followed the second inau- guration of her husband, President James Madison. Because it was so hard to keep fro- zen, ice cream wasn't much enjoyed by the masses until the early 19th century when insulated ice houses were invented. Advancements in electricity and mobile refrigeration eventually enabled more folks to be able to buy and store it. Now, over 1.5 billion gallons of ice cream and other frozen dairy treats – like sherbet and frozen yogurt – are produced in the U.S. every year. Here's a look at some of the area's best ice cream munchers doing what they do best. Why not take a page from their book of summer fun? Just add a gen- erous helping of sprinkles and let the good times roll! We all scream for ICE CREAM! Maria, 7, and Tracy at Carvel in Hopewell Junction
