Happy National Thread The Needle Day! Considering this is probably the 200th+ day I've done my Daily Doodle after 9pm though, I feel like I'm constantly celebrating cutting things close, so we will find out some fun facts about Hot Fudge Sundaes!
Sundaes first appeared in the early 1900s, and within a few years there were already several variations of it, such as the Robin Hood sundae, Cocoa Caramel sundae, Black Hawk sundae, Angel Cake sundae, Cherry Dip sundae, Cinnamon Peak sundae, Opera sundae, Fleur D’Orange sundae, Knickerbocker sundae, Tally-Ho Sundae, Bismarck and George Washington sundae, just to name but a few.
American-style fudge was first made in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1886, and its popularity soon expanded. It is believed ice cream and hot fudge were first combined in 1906 at C.C. Browns, an ice cream parlor on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, and the hot fudge sundae was born. Today, even Google recognizes July 25th as an official Hot Fudge Sundae holiday!
In case you thought you were the biggest fan of sundaes, you may have to concede defeat when you read about some of these World Records! For example, the longest sundae was created in March of 2018. It measured more than 4,549 feet long! It was created in College Station at the Spirit of Texas festival.
The most expensive sundae can also be found in the United States. If you are willing to pay $25,000, you can enjoy the world’s most expensive sundae in New York City at Serendipity 3. The owner of Serendipity 3, Stephen Bruce, teamed up with Euphoria, a luxury jeweler, in order to create the Frozen Haute Chocolate sundae.
The sundae included 28 different cocoas, with 14 of the world’s most exotic and expensive cocoas. The dessert, which is spelled with two Rs, is served in a goblet that is lined with edible gold, and it is infused with five grams of edible 23-karat gold. It is then topped with whipped cream, which has more gold on the top. One the side, you will get a La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier. This sells for $2,600 per pound.
