The Origin of Ice Cream

According to the International Dairy Foods Association, the origins of ice cream date back to the second century B.C., when several prominent historical figures such as Alexander the Great, King Soloman and Nero Claudius Caesar enjoyed consuming iced beverages and snow. As the centuries passed, the snow and ice was refined into cream ice and eventually, in 1777, ice cream was first advertised in New York. However, ice cream was a rare delicacy for the elite until 1800s when ice houses were built. Since then, it has become a staple dessert for the American people.


The President's Ice Cream

During the summer of 1790, President George Washington spent $200 on ice cream.  Meanwhile, according to Thomas Berry of Duke University, the price of 1 pound of coffee was $0.50 in 1788.


The Cone!

Per Guinness World Records, the tallest ice cream cone was made by Hennig-Olsen and Trond L Wøienin 2015. It was 10 ft 1.26 in tall.


Not Just for the Babies

10% of milk in the US goes towards making ice cream.


Ice Cream is the Answer

During World War II, ice cream was served to troops to boost morale while sanctions and rationing was in effect for the general public.  When the war ended, rationing of ice cream was lifted and Americans celebrated victory with a cold, creamy treat. In fact, each American consumed more than 20 quarts of ice cream in 1946.


Ice Cream in the US

In 2014, 872 million gallons of ice cream were produced in the United States. The average American annually consumes 22 pounds of ice cream.


In the end, we realized we were much better off trusting what the ALL IN Miami Group told us than listening to the other so-called experts.

Our home, priced at $1,225,000, was on the market for a year without any offers........Amit sold it in 34 days at a price that we were very happy with.

"After our home, priced at $1,225,000, was on the market with a local Realtor for ONE YEAR without receiving any offers, my family and I had given up hope of selling our house. 

The first day our home came off the market, I received countless calls from real estate agents from many different luxury real estate companies. 

For about a month, none of them made me feel confident that our home would ever sell until I spoke to Amit and the team. There was something different about them compared to everyone else. They had a calm, soothing, yet very confident tone in their voice, and I was immediately convinced that our house would be sold the first time we spoke. 

To make a long story short, our home was sold in 34 days at a price that we were very happy with and with no stress. Doing business with true professionals made all the difference." 


My home was on the market with three real estate agents and it didn't sell. They all told me that the luxury market was very slow and my home was way overpriced. Amit sold my house in two and half weeks over the asking price. Couldn't be happier!
