Knickerbocker glory resonates around the world as an ice-cream for champions. You know, those with killer instincts to overcome the conquest of having a large and tantalizing type of sundae that not everyone’s familiar.
They say that Knickerbocker glory originated from New York in the early 1900s. According to some it is named from the Knickerbocker Hotel in Manhattan, New York.
The well-known chocolate sundae is sold everywhere around the world. The Knickerbocker glory is basically the same in that it is served with a long spoon to get to the bottom.
To be a Knickerbocker Glory the dish must maintain the red and white stripes; anything else is a tall sundae. However, additional ingredients can be added: Syrups, nuts, a cherry on top and a cookie garnish are popular.
One of the culinary pleasures of the world, if you haven’t had one yet, may I suggest the next time you see it on a menu then try one.
