Ithaca, Two Rivers Square Off Over Sundae Origin

Ithaca, known and advertised as the home of the ice cream sundae, now must compete for the title with Two Rivers, Wis., also asserting itself to be the true home of the ice cream sundae.
The feud began in May when Ithaca contacted Two Rivers, telling them of their promotion to donate over 70 tubs of ice cream to local restaurants, advertising Ithaca as the home of the ice cream sundae. Ithaca had wanted to know if Two Rivers cared to engage in a lighthearted battle, in which the two towns would debate which place was actually the original creator of the ice cream treat.
