The Guilt-Free Ice-cream

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.

Besides, the history, there are many interesting facts about your so loved dessert that we bet you didn’t know. For now, we give you five such facts:
