Bowling Green State University Popular Press, 1995, 0-87972-692-X, 161 pgs
- This book is a historical study of ice cream history in
- the United States. The chapters are loosely organized
- chronlogically, with the first chapter being on the
- first 100 years, the second being about homemade and
- hand-cranked ice cream in the 18th and 19th centuries,
- the third about whole sale ice cream from 1850-1900,
- the fourth about soda fountains in the 19th century,
- the fifth about ice cream bars, etc from 1900-1939,
- and the last about ice cream from 1940-1995.
- As the title suggests, this book is a "history of American
- ice cream" book rather than a recipe book. The style is a
- bit dry, but it provides a nice history of US ice cream.
- And there are lots of interesting little stories and
