Ice cream is famous throughout the world. But America does seem to be the true home of ice cream. Many events center around this tantalizing dessert. First dates, trips to the movies, an after dinner treat, a snack at the pool, ice cream symbolizes fun, and brings about many happy memories. The image of a group of people holding Ice cream cups in the United States, paints a perfect picture of community and the enjoyment of life.
But people in America are not alone in their feelings about this frozen treat. In Europe, a parlor lined with Gelato cups and spoons, smelling of espresso, and filled with people brings about the same feeling of community and happiness as ice cream does in the United States. People will gather after a soccer game with their friends to get gelato, or stop by on their way to work to get gelato for breakfast.
These frozen treats are much more than just food in America and Europe. People, when eating ice cream and gelato, think about being carefree, being young, and enjoying the company of their friends. This feeling is constant no matter where one is in the world. It doesn’t matter if you and your friends are eating a frozen treat with Ice cream spoons or gelato spoons, or if you are in America or Europe, because these frozen treats truly symbolize a world where people value friendship, happiness, and community above all else.
