State Fact: Wisconsin & The Ice Cream Sundae

by Ryan Shell

For some reason, when I think about an ice cream sundae the first thing that comes to mind is a McDonalds Hot Fudge Sundae, with nuts of course.

I guess it’s a childhood memory that has stuck in my mind.

Apparently, serving ice cream on Sundays used to be illegal.


So, in 1881, to get around the law, the ice cream sundae was created in Wisconsin to get around the law.

There’s only one way to celebrate this fact, and that’s to go get a, in my case, McDonalds sundae today.
