I'm 34 years old and from what I understand there was a time, back in the day, when a person wanted to enjoy a good ol' fashioned ice cream sundae, they went to the local ice cream shop (or parlour as some were called) where a fresh-faced employee dressed in a red and white striped apron and paper hat would construct an ice cream sundae to their exact specifications. These creations were limited only by the imagination of the consumer. If you wanted a little bit of everything, you could get a little bit of everything. If you only wanted one topping, you had the freedom to make it happen.
Although the red and white striped aprons and hats may be gone, there are still several of these types of ice cream shops in the Evansville area with each offering their own variation on the timeless ice cream sundae. But there's a new kid in town with a fresh idea on this classic treat.
