I Scream, You Scream, Sanitary Ice Cream!

May 1912--Here's an ad headline from a local Coshocton ice cream maker: Sanitary Ice Cream. Special prices on Ice Cream For Church and Grange Socials, Sunday School
Picnics and Lawn Fetes.

The implication being other other maker's ice cream was, ummm, unsanitary. Did this mean that A.E. Peele's ice cream didn't have leaves, sticks and small things that go crunch? Maybe, the cream came from clean cows...not like those snotty nosed, dirty udder types from the other side of the tracks. This was church goin', sunday school approved, god fearin' ice cream.

So, get me a spoon already.
