Thai-Style 'Rolled Ice Cream' Getting Popular in U.S.
This is What's Trending Today.
The weather in the Northern Hemisphere may be getting cooler, but there is still time left to enjoy frozen desserts typical of summer.
One of the most traditional warm-weather treats is ice cream -- a frozen mixture of cream, sugar, milk and flavorings.
Many people believe the dessert first became popular in the United States after the wives of early presidents served it in the White House. According to the White House Historical Association, Dolley Madison, the wife of President James Madison, served ice cream there for the first time. That was in the early 1800s.
But ice cream has changed a lot in the last 200 years.
And now, a new style of ice cream that started in Southeast Asia is spreading in the United States: rolled ice cream.
This summer, rolled ice cream could be found at street festivals from New York City to Nashville, Tennessee. At Sweet Charlie's, a store in Philadelphia, customers often wait in line for over two hours to order their rolled ice cream.
Some people call it "Thai stir-fried ice cream." That is because it looks like it is made on a hot grill, in the same way people cook meat and vegetables.
But the grill used for making the treat is actually extremely cold.
The ice cream "chefs" add things like cookies, candy, and even pizza into the ice cream mixture. Then, the ice cream begins to freeze. Next, the chef spreads it in a thin layer over the cold surface. After a few seconds, the chef uses a tool to scrape the ice cream off the cold surface and turn it into a roll. The rolls are then put in a cup and covered with fruit or flavored syrup.
One serving costs about six dollars in most places in the United States.
Thailand most often gets credit for the creation; a popular YouTube channel called "Ice Cream Rolls" reports that the dessert started there. Millions of people watch the channel's latest videos each week.
Asia has been coming up with new frozen treats for a long time. A recent New York Times article reported that "elaborate" frozen desserts were written about in Japanese literature nearly 1,000 years ago.
And, as one Asian food expert in Seoul, South Korea, told the Times: "You would never be served plain ice cream in a cup here. That would be too boring."
And that's What's Trending Today.

北半球的气温逐渐转凉，但人们对夏季冷饮的热情依旧高涨 。冰淇淋是消暑的传统甜品——一种混合着奶油、白糖、牛奶和香精的混合物 。
许多人认为，冰淇淋首次风靡美国是早期的总统夫人们将这一甜点带进白宫的时候 。白宫历史协会指出，第一位将冰淇淋摆上白宫餐桌的是美国前总统詹姆斯·麦迪逊（James Madison）的夫人多利·麦迪逊（Dolley Madison） 。那是在19世纪早期 。
今夏，无论是纽约还是田纳西州的纳什维尔，大街小巷随处可见冰淇淋卷 。费城的查理甜品店（Sweet Charlie’s）经常门庭若市，人们为了点一份冰淇淋卷不惜排队两个多小时 。
有人称这种冰淇淋为“泰式烤冰淇淋” 。因为它看似在烧烤架上制作的，与烤肉和蔬菜的做法类似 。
制作冰淇淋的“厨师”在冰淇淋中加入饼干、糖果、甚至披萨 。然后将冰淇淋冷冻起来 。接下来，厨师将冰淇淋摊成薄薄的片状 。放置几秒后，厨师再用工具把冰淇淋做成卷状 。将卷好的冰淇淋放进纸杯后添加水果或糖浆 。
泰国人极富创造力是出了名的；YouTube的热门频道“冰淇淋卷”报道了泰国的这一甜点 。每周有数百万人观看该频道的最新节目 。
长期以来，亚洲不断地推出新式冷冻甜品 。《纽约时报》最近的一篇报道称，早在1000年前，日本文献中就记载了“精美”的冷冻甜品 。韩国首尔一名亚洲美食专家对该报社表示：“日后普通的冰淇淋杯就不复存在了 。那样太缺乏新意 。”
