TRUTH !!
Ice cream sodas (or ice cream floats) were once banned in America on holy
days. An alternative dish made with sauce, a cherry and sometimes other
toppings became known as the sundae as it could be served on Sundays. The
sundae was new and interesting at the time as the sauce was served as a
topping rather than a way of making flavored ice cream.

Two Rivers, Wisconsin, claims it was the site of the first sundae. This
claim dates back to 1881 when the druggist Edward Berner poured sauce over
ice cream after being asked to do so by a customer (George Hallauer). Due to
Hallauer's enjoyment of the dish, Berner began to advertise "ice cream with
syrup" in his shop for a nickel and it soon became very popular.
