On January 24, 1922, Christian K. Nelson patented the wonderful ice cream treat, the Eskimo Pie. The polar bears of Alaska and Canada were extremely disappointed to learn that it was vanilla ice cream encased in a frozen chocolate shell. The ursine dwellers of the Far North had hoped there would have been at least some whale blubber, seal meat, or Eskimo in each pie. Don’t think they wouldn’t eat every Eskimo Pie you’d care to feed them. They would. They were just hoping for a little more Eskimo in each pie.
I completely understand their confusion. I was very relieved to learn the actual ingredients in Baby Oil. Share this post to learn the truth about Naugahyde.
