The ice cream soda has been around since 1874; when invented by Robert McCay in Philadelphia, PA. The story told is Mr. Green ran out of ice for the flavored soda he was selling and used vanilla ice cream from a nearby vendor, hence inventing the ice cream soda.
Today, the ice cream soda can be found in countries across the globe. The ice cream soda is known as a float, coke float, cooler, snowball, or spider depending on where you are in the world.
An ice cream soda is a beverage containing ice cream with either a soft drink or a combination of flavored syrup and carbonated water.
Varieties The ice cream soda has numerous varieties of sodas and ice cream flavors. Some of the most popular are listed below:
Chocolate ice cream soda: Chocolate syrup, chocolate ice cream, unflavored carbonated water and top with whipped cream. Black and White: Chocolate syrup, vanilla ice cream, unflavored carbonated water and top with whipped cream. Root beer float ("black cow" or "brown cow"): Vanilla ice cream and root beer Coke float: Coca-Cola and vanilla ice-cream. Boston Cooler: Vernors ginger ale and Stroh's vanilla ice cream. Snow White: 7 Up or Sprite and vanilla ice cream. Purple cow: Vanilla ice cream, purple grape soda. Orange Float (Orange Whip): Vanilla ice cream and orange soda.
Root Beer Float is traditionally made with vanilla ice cream and root beer.
We chose a diet root beer soda to avoid the excess sugar and limit the calories. The diet root beer has "zero" calories.
Beverage. Make sure you carefully combine the soda and ice cream. The reaction causes bubbles to form and a rapid rise in foam, which is part of the fun and can get messy. Use 1/4 cup light vanilla ice cream. Add a straw, spoon and enjoy.

June 18 is International Picnic Day; an informal food holiday. The day is celebrated where food is brought from home or a market and eaten outdoors.
The origin of picnic day dates back to the medieval times. After a successful hunt, people would gather outside for a picnic. It is possible International Picnic Day was developed and promoted to bring families together for outside activities, family reunions, exercise, relaxation, and an appreciation of nature. Traditional foods served on International Picnic Day include such dishes as salads, sandwiches, beverages, and desserts. If a grill is available, include cooked meats, fish, poultry, and vegetables.
*Pack beverages in one cooler and perishable foods in another. *Limit the number of times the cooler is opened so as to keep the contents cold longer. *Be sure to keep raw meat, poultry, and seafood securely wrapped. This keeps their juices from contaminating prepared and cooked foods or foods that will be eaten raw, such as fruits and vegetables. *Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables under running tap water before packing them in the cooler. *Keep food properly chilled in a cooler and don’t let food sit out for more than two hours (one hour if the temperature is 90º F or higher).
Sushi is rich in omega-3s and healthy fatty acids. There are several different types of sushi: Nigiri Sushi. Mounds of sticky rice are wrapped or layered with seafood and other ingredients

Wasabi. Japanese horseradish, and it's HOT; comes as a powder that you make into a thick, bright green paste by adding liquid

How safe is the raw fish in sushi?
Commercial freezing for at least 72 hours at 4 degrees Fahrenheit kills the parasitic worms and their larvae. Note, home freezers usually cannot reach temperatures this low. Precautions:
• Order sushi from reputable restaurants, where the restaurant and fish provider follow food safety standards. • Eating fish cooked completely is always the safest. • The FDA recommends pregnant or individuals with compromised immune systems (young children, the elderly, and persons with chronic illness) should not risk eating raw fish. • Never make your own sushi with raw fish unless you can freeze the fish for more than 72 hours at 4 degrees Fahrenheit. Instead, use cooked fish or vegetables.
•Proper handling and preparation are crucial to ensure the safety of sushi made with raw fish. • After purchasing raw seafood, fish, and sushi rice; refrigerate immediately below 41ºF until ready to serve. • Preparing rice with vinegar lowers the pH and helps slow the rate of bacterial growth. • Once sushi rolls and sashimi are prepared, refrigerate immediately until serving. • Cross-contamination is a concern since sushi is made with both raw and cooked fish. To prevent cross-contamination, raw and cooked fish must be physically separated during preparation. Use different utensils, cutting boards, and surfaces.
