Chocolate, Strawberry, and Vanilla: A History of American Ice Cream

Front Cover
Popular Press, 1995 - Cooking - 211 pages
Ice cream has a singular place in American cuisine as both a comfort food and festive treat. Fudge ripple is a consolation for a minor disappointment, and butterscotch swirl is a reward for reaching a personal goal.
Chocolate, Strawberry, and Vanilla traces the evolution of ice cream from a rarity to an everyday indulgence. It covers the genesis of ice cream in America, the invention of the hand-cranked ice cream freezer, the natural ice industry, the beginnings of wholesale ice cream manufacturing, and the origins of the ice cream soda, sundae, cone, sandwich, and bar. It also recounts the histories of many brands, including Dairy Queen, Good Humor, Eskimo Pie, Ben and Jerry's, Baskin-Robbins, and Haagen-Dazs. This history of ice cream reflects and reveals changes in social customs, diet and nutrition, class distinctions, leisure activities, and everyday life.

The fictional Pandora was a lush
world supporting a whole host of life, from the humanoid Na'vi to the amazing glowing plants. But the real Pandoras are almost the exact opposite.
Pandora in Mythology - The real Pandoras were names after the first mortal female in Greek mythology. The story tells that <a href="">pandora charms</a> was given gifts by the gods, including a jar, which she was told never to open. However, unable to restrain her curiousity, she peeked inside, unwittingly releasing all the evils into the world and leaving only hope in the bottom of the jar.
Saturn's Moon Pandora - Whereas James Cameron's world was a planetoid with an atmosphere, Saturn's moon is little more than a large rock circling the gas giant in the outer solar system. The moon was discovered in 1980 in pictures taken by the Voyager 1 probe. According to scans taken by NASA's Cassini mission, the moon is just 81 kilometers (50 miles) wide and is a 'shepherd' moon for Saturn's outer F ring, meaning that it helps hold the ring together. NASA scientists believe the moon is made mostly of ice, and its surface is pitted with craters. Although it does have a weak gravity, it is nowhere near the levels seen on Earth - or Cameron's <a href="">pandora uk</a>.
The Asteroid 55 Pandora - The asteroid may not be as interesting as the fictional world, but it still managed to play a part in a famous controversy. 55 Pandora was discovered in 1858 by George Searle, who was working at the Dudley Observatory in Albany at the time. In 1857-58, around the time of the discovery of 55 <a href="">pandora charms christmas 2013</a>, the board of trustees at Dudley Observatory had a major disagreement with its scientific council. There had been problems getting the observatory into operation, and this was compounded by a predicted shortfall in funding, leading the trustees and the council to take opposing views on the way forward. The dispute became so bad that Benjamin A. Gould, a staff member responsible for overseeing the preparation of the observatory, and at the time the only American to hold a Ph.D. in astronomy, was sacked. Reports from the time claimed that Gould, annoyed by the treatment he received from observatory and hearing of the decision to name the newly discovered asteroid 'Pandora', declared "the apt significance of which will be obvious to all."
