Happy Ice Cream Soda Day!

Today is National Ice Cream Soda Day! Stop into Justine’s and try one. It’s the perfect thing to cool you off on this June day.

Ice cream sodas were invented by Robert Green in 1874 during Philadelphia’s sesquicentennial celebration. Legend has it that Mr. Green added vanilla ice cream to the soda he sold after he ran out of ice.  Intentional or not, it was a delicious way to keep the sodas cold, and they were an instant hit. Green was so proud of his creation that he even had the phrase “Originator of the Ice Cream Soda” engraved on his tombstone!
