Did you know...
Germans enjoy spaghetti ice cream?

It is finally summertime in the northern hemisphere and for Germans that means indulging in one of their favorite pastimes: Eis essen! But spaghetti ice cream? The name might seem misleading. Germany is a diverse nation with a long history of immigration, and as such, the cuisine reflects the contributions of the many immigrant groups who have lived and worked there for many generations. Spaghettieis is a novelty treat that was created in 1969 by Dario Fontanella, son of an Italian immigrant and owner of an ice cream parlor in Mannheim. The method uses a spaetzle press to squeeze vanilla ice cream through it to create the spaghetti-esque strands, a one-of-a-kind summer treat you're unlikely to find anywhere else in the world, but will surely spot outside every Eisdiele across Germany.
