National Chocolate Ice Cream Day

+ National Chocolate Ice Cream Day

Challenge #1

Can you draw an ice cream fruit (there actually is one)?

Did you know: That’s right. There’s a Hawaiian fruit that tastes exactly like vanilla ice cream. It’s called the inga feuillei, but locals call it the ice cream bean. It grows on perennial trees in hot climates, and it is enjoyed in many different ways by locals. Which Came First: Chocolate or Vanilla? If you thought the answer was vanilla, you’re wrong. Chocolate was actually invented first. We generally assume that vanilla ice cream came first because it’s the common base that creates many other flavors. However, it wasn’t always that way.

Challenge #2

Can you draw what you would add to your ice cream to make it delicious?

Did you know: Ice cream is a mixture of milk, cream, sugar, and sometimes other ingredients, that has been frozen into a soft, creamy delight using special techniques. One of the first places to serve ice cream to the general public in Europe was Café Procope in France, which started serving it in the late 18th century. The ice cream was made from a combination of milk, cream, butter, and eggs.

Challenge #3

Can you draw yourself licking an ice cream cone?

Did you know: It takes an approximate 50 licks to finish an ice cream. The number may decrease if you are famished. Air is added to ice cream to make it lighter and improve its texture. The amount of air added determines the quality of an ice cream. The more the air, the cheaper the ice cream in terms of money and quality (in some cases).
