Google’s Ice Cream Sundae Logo

Happy 119th anniversary to the ice cream sundae! Yes, 119 years ago, in Ithaca, New York, two men invented the first ice cream sundae. To celebrate the day and bring awareness to this event, Google has a special ice cream sundae logo.

The two men, John M. Scott and Chester Platt, first called the dish the “Cherry Sunday” and tried to trademark the term “Sunday.” That never happened and later on it became known as the “Sundae.”

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy a refreshing and delicious ice cream sundae today!

If not, you can at least enjoy the Google logo.

    Ya GOTTA be kidding me? The ice cream Sundae was invented in Wisconsin. Who does your research? Oooops! I know that and I’m not even FROM Wisconsin.

    Surprised that Google had this in the UK, and not Mother’s Day. Nice design though!
