In the United States, there is a cultural phenomenon surrounding ice cream. The song “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream” is the ice cream anthem. Since it was first used in Hershey’s commercials in the 1950s, the song became as popular as ice cream itself.

There, it was transformed into what we know today as ice cream.
In around 1500, ice cream spread across the world thanks to its popularity in France. It was around this time that ice cream was established as a symbol of summer.
