Ah, summer! Scoop an ice cream! June 23, 2007

Did you know that it takes the average person just about 50 licks to finish a single scoop ice cream cone?

While no one is quite sure who should get the credit for inventing ice cream, we do know that in the fifth century BC, the ancient Greeks sold snow cones mixed with honey and fruit in the markets of Athens.

Both Julius Caesar and the Emperor Nero of Rome claimed credit for the idea to mix snow with nectar, fruit pulp and honey.
