Did you know that soft-serves – like many other great inventions – were invented accidently, and we mean quite literally. On Memorial Day weekend of 1934, an ice-cream truck driver, Tom Carvel’s truck got a flat tire. Realizing that all of the ice-cream in his trailer would melt, he began selling the partially melted ice-cream and to his surprise, people loved it. Carvel then started working on the formula to make soft serve and soon established a business out of it.
No brain freeze
A cone of soft-serve won’t give you brain freeze as it is served at a lower temperature as compared to hard packed ice-creams. That’s good, right?
Soft serve has only 3.5% fat! So, go ahead, enjoy a guilt free treat at McDonald’s.
It’s made of milk
Normally low fat desserts are vegetable oil based, which isn’t very healthy, but not soft serve, which is based on milk fat.
As versatile as it gets
There are more than 200 ways in which McDonald’s serves its soft-serves around the world. We will come with a list very soon. Watch this space.
It has so many names!
