Today’s photo of the day challenge came straight from our Ask.com homepage question of the day. What was the original ICEE flavor?

If you guessed, Cola…you were correct!

The ICEE was invented in 1958 by a Kansas Dairy Queen own who had been placing bottles of soda in his freezer until frozen, because he didn’t own a soda fountain. The frozen drinks were popular and he soon realized that he needed a machine to make the product. Did you know he originally wanted the tasty treats to be called, "scoldasices"??

If you said Judy Garland, you’re correct!

Miss Garland was actually born Frances Ethel Gumm today, June 10th, 1922. Fred Astaire once described Garland as the greatest entertainer who ever lived, with a career that spanned more than 40 years as an actress in musical and dramatic roles, as a recording artist and on the concert stage. She signed to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer as a teenager after performing vaudeville with her two older sisters. Of course, she is best know for her role as Dorothy in the 1939 classic, The Wizard of Oz. Happy Birthday Judy!
