(CNN) — Save room for dessert because Sunday is National Ice Cream Day.
The unofficial holiday falls in the middle of a whole month dedicated to the sweet treat.
Its origins are believed to have taken place thousands of years ago when Persians put snow in a bowl with juice.
Later the Chinese started freezing dairy with salt and ice in 697 A.D.
Antonio Latini is credited with crafting a more modern version of ice cream.
He created a milk-based sorbet in Naples, Italy, in 1642.
