Marco Polo saw people eating ice cream there and brought back the idea to Italy. From Italy the idea was carried to France. It became very popular in France with rich, and an effort was even made to keep the recipes a secret from the common people.

The first factory to manufacture ice cream was started in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1851. However, the real development of ice cream and the ice cream business didn't take place until after 1900 with the new developments in refrigeration. 

The basis of all ice cream is cream, milk or milk sodas, sugar, and sometime eggs, Vanilla, chocolate, berries, fruit ingredients, and nuts are added as flavours. A small amount of gelatin is used in order to retain the smoothness of the ice cream by preventing the formation of ice crystals.
