Ice cream was developed from frozen food. As early as the 1st century AD, ancient Roman kings called slaves to collect ice and snow from the mountains in summer to freeze fruit, honey and juice. Kings often used these frozen treats to entertain favorites and foreign messengers in the summer.

Some researchers believe that ice cream originated in China. As early as more than 1,000 years ago, in order to cool off the heat, the feudal princes asked people to take ice in winter, store it in the cellar, and enjoy it in summer. At the end of the Tang Dynasty, people mined a lot of saltpeter in the production of gunpowder, and when they discovered by chance that saltpeter was dissolved in cold water, it would absorb a lot of heat, and even make the water freeze. Since then, people can make ice in summer without storing ice cubes. At this time, there are merchants who specialize in selling ice in the summer, and they add sugar to the ice to attract customers. In the Song Dynasty, there were more varieties of frozen food in the market. Merchants also add fruit or juice to it. The merchants of the Yuan Dynasty even added fruit puree and milk to the ice, and this frozen food was considered to be the original ice cream.

In 1848, scientists invented the hand-cranked freezer, allowing people to make ice cream at home. At the time, ice cream mixes were added to smaller stainless steel containers, which were then placed in a wooden barrel. Pour the ice into a wooden bucket and distribute the ice evenly around the stainless steel container, then after two minutes, turn the hand freezer to cool the ice cream ingredients thoroughly, then add salt to the ice to freeze the ice cream.
The development of condensed and solid milk, coupled with the invention of the homogenizer, pasteurizer and freezer, stimulated the development of the early ice cream industry. In the development of the ice cream industry, the most significant advancement was the invention of the continuous freezer in 1925.
