In 1892 at Platt and colt pharmacy in Ithaca, the ice cream sundae occurred when the reverend John M. Scotts stopped to order a bowl of ice cream. Chester Platt started preparing the ice cream and didn’t only stop at the scoops of the vanilla ice cream but also added some cherry syrup and topped it with a red cherry on top of it.
