Frosty flavours to melt for: Ice cream map

DOWNLOAD ICE CREAM MAP (PDF)

Honey, wine, and mountain ice. Such were the ingredients of the first ice cream served at the table of Roman emperors. Meanwhile, the European history of dairy-based ice cream - the kind that we’re used to - dates back to the 17th century.

Soon afterwards, ice cream became popular in Lithuania. 18th-century cookbooks describe the intricate process of making fruit ice cream from cherries, currants, strawberries, raspberries, and sea buckthorn. They also feature recipes for ice cream cake!

A century later, Lithuanian nobility was enjoying ice cream by and large. Some of their favourite flavours used to include orange blossom, rose, almond, saffron, coffee, and even clove.

Today, an average Lithuanian eats 7 litres of ice cream per year - that’s about one and a half servings per week. We’re not the most sweet-toothed nation in the world (New Zealand eats four times more ice cream), but on the flavour variety front, Lithuania is certainly at the top.

Our updated map of frosty treats includes flavours to melt for. Lettuce, cucumber and honey, rose, cedar nut, kvass, smoked berries… Sounds weird? Don't knock it until you've tried it!
