Unlike ice cream, frozen yogurt has only been around since the 1970’s and really only popular since the 1980’s. That's because people didn't like it when it was introduced. The history is not really that interesting and it is definitely not as tasty or as low fat as the froyo itself. Ok, the information may be low fat because really, there are no calories in information but still I think the history of frozen yogurt may be a little more trivia than you or I can handle.
And since we’ve already talked about the history of ice cream, let’s talk about the brief history of waffles. Yay, the history of waffles! The discovery of waffles can be traced back to the Greeks, of course, who used to cook obelios which were flat cakes cooked between two metal plates.
Then during the Middle Ages cooks wanted to compete for the religious wafer market so the better tasting waffle was born. The waffle world exploded; waffle irons were in coat of arms, religious symbols and even literature like the Canterbury Tales. The Pilgrims brought the waffle to America where the recipes stuck like maple syrup.
Thomas Jefferson was the first to serve waffles in the White House and America got its first taste of a Belgian waffle at the 1964 World’s Fair. The Eggo was invented by some brothers in San Jose and Kellogg bought the recipe and has sold millions of the tasty treats.
I told you it was going to be a brief history. Let’s get to the deal which is $6 of ice cream and more for $3 from Dreyer’s Ice Cream. Dreyer’s Ice Cream features 28 flavors of Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream. They also have hand scooped shakes and malts, sundaes, ice cream sandwiches and soft serve frozen yogurt. It is Bakersfield’s newest ice cream shop with two locations to serve you. One is located at the end of the Highway 178 and the other is in the Save Mart shopping at Hageman and Calloway.
Today’s deal is $6 of delicious ice cream and more from Dreyer’s Ice Cream for $3 which is why I tell you the history of frozen yogurt and the waffle thing is just a little bonus from me to you. You’re welcome. Not that you actually need to know the history of the stuff you eat. Sometimes however it's kind of cool to know that you are eating the same thing as Chaucer or proving those wackos in the 1970s who didn’t like frozen yogurt that you have better taste.
