National Rocky Road Day
National Rocky Road Day celebrates Rocky Road Ice Cream, a dessert made with marshmallows, nuts and chocolate.
Rocky Road is an ice cream flavor. However, it is also a dessert that is much older than icecream. This dessert inspired the creation of ice cream with these ingredients.
National Rocky Road Day is a great way to celebrate these delicious treats.
In 1853, the Rocky Road dessert was created for the first time in Australia. Unscrupulous businessmen mixed confectionery items from Europe that had been damaged by the journey and used them to make a local dessert.
Named after the rough road travelers used to reach the gold fields. The dessert had the appearance of a bumpy road with potholes and rocks.
Rocky Road ice-cream was created by William Dreyer, an Oakland resident, in 1929. As a way to lift spirits of people affected by the Wall Street crash of 1929, Dreyer created Rocky Road ice cream with the same ingredients as the original. This treat was known as “share a scoop, smile” at the time.
Rocky Road ice cream is a great way to celebrate this day.
