In the early 1800s, long before refrigerators, commercial icehouses kept food cold through the summer using ice blocks cut from frozen lakes during the winter. Ice cream, previously a rare wintertime delicacy, could now be served anytime and it became extremely popular. It was so popular that in 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair, an ice cream stand operator ran out of dishes for his ice cream. A clerk at a neighboring waffle stand rolled his waffles into cones to hold the ice cream and the ice cream cone has been around ever since.
