Soda Fountains were at the core of American identity in wartime, representing so much of what we were trying to protect in our way of life: a sense of home, community, a place to relax & unwind, not to mention they were the dispensaries of our country's favorite sweet food: ice cream. In this episode Sarah digs into why Americans were obsessed with ice cream despite what the rest of the world thought of us and what unique challenges soda fountains faced in a time of war. She features some wartime-inspired soda fountain creations and highlights a couple soda jerks of Hollywood fame!
