The meaning of “ Ice Cream" can vary from one country to another. Some countries call it "frozen yogurt" or "sorbet" or "gelato".  During the early 5th century  BC, the ancient Greeks ate snow mixed with fruit and honey. 

In 400 BC, the Persians invented a chilled food made of vermicelli and rose water along with ice which was mixed with saffron and fruits and other flavors. 

According to NASA,  ice-cream is among the top 3 items missed by astronauts in space.
