Celebrated on July 8th
The ice cream sundae is one of the food world's greatest mysteries. Why is it called a "sundae" when you can eat it any day? Why is it spelled with an "e" at the end when the "y" works so well in other situations? The fact is, you may never know. But take heart, you don't need to understand the word to know they are delicious — especially when you move beyond just hot fudge and sprinkles.
There are over hundred different types of sundaes, but the most expensive sundae to be documented was sold for thousand American dollars. It consists of five scoops of rich vanilla bean ice cream covered in edible gold leafs that are made from a rare and expensive chocolate. Then it is covered with passion fruit, oranges, golden caviar, and candied fruits. The cherries are made out of marzipan that has real gold touches. It is served in a crystal goblet and a golden spoon.
More ice-cream is sold on Sunday than any other day of the week. The biggest ice-cream sundae ever made was 12 feet high! It took 4,667 gallons of ice cream and 7,000 pounds of toppings
