CHARLES REPNOW , Minot Daily News

Ice cream is often called the great American dessert. In America, the first record of ice cream appears in a letter written in 1700 by a guest of Gov. Bladen of Maryland. By 1790, ice cream was a favorite treat of Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. No one can identify a single moment or place where ice cream was discovered. Alexander the Great is said to have enjoyed snow and ice that was flavored with honey and nectar.
