In the White House what was recurrently on the menu that George Washington was fanatical about and Presidents Madison, Andrew Jackson, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Richard Nixon would not do without? The statement is ice cream, short a incertitude. Ice slime was besides asserted "morale food" by the US regular army during World War I.

Even Marco Polo power have seen it sold on the streets in China.Post ads:

During the ordinal and ordinal centuries, austere Europeans had to be cajoled to let the glacial matter go into into their bodies, since supreme illnesses were damn on the ice unguent. Yet, disenchanting the Europeans evidenced not to be too difficult, given the spirit of the sweet.
