National Sundae Day

Five Food Finds about Ice Cream

  • In 1985, the biggest Ice Cream sundae was made in California. It stood 12ft tall and was made with 4,667 gallons of ice Cream.
  • You could make about 70,000 regular size sundae’s with that much Ice Cream.
  • It takes Hayward’s 3,000 lbs. of jimmies per year to satisfy their customers.
  • It takes 12 lbs. of milk to make just one gallon of ice cream.
  • The biggest ice cream sundae in history was made in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in 1988, and weighed in at over 24 tons. You can’t order that in an ice cream parlor!
