Ice cream has come a long way from the Old Cone Age

Emma Fein

About 2.5 million years ago at the end of the last ice age... Real talk, it was invented during the 17th century and originally referred to as "Cream Ice" because without refrigerators it was mostly cream anyway!

It can now be sandwiched between two warm cookies

This creation is from Diddy Riese in LA, California. The line is always down the street and around the corner, but it's only $2 for a fresh ice cream sandwich. The classic "chipwich" has been taken to a whole new level with different flavor cookies and ice cream. Not to mention it's open until 1 AM, and the perfect spot for late night eats.

Even dyed rainbow colors

Yes, this is the one flavor your mom never let you order. This is vanilla flavored "Superman" ice cream from Brendy's in Florida. Trust me, there's a reason I posted a picture of me holding the ice cream versus a selfie after eating it.

Rolled up and topped

Emma Fein

Who said rolls were a bad thing? 10Below, in New York City hand rolls the ice cream from scratch turning liquid cream into ice cream right in front of the customer. This thai inspired dessert comes in a variety of flavors from "s'mores galore," "strawberry shawty," "matcha made in heaven," to "ain't got no thai fo' dat."

Even Shaved

To all those kids who always eat there snow, here's some that actually tastes good! At NY Frost Factory, you pick out a flavor, topping, and drizzle to transform shaved ice into an ice cream experience.

Swirled with your favorite colors and flavors

Aesthetics have become just as, if not more, important to the taste. This tasty treat is from Hinsdale Trading Co. in the Berkshires, MA. After a warm day in the summer sun, you can never go wrong!
