Gannett News Service

        Hot days demand cool treats. Forget about the saying “A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips” and dive into a bowl of ice cream to beat the heat. You can learn more about this frozen delicacy at the sites listed below.

        • Recapture the phenomenon of days gone by at www.sodafountain.com The site gives the history of the soda fountain, lingo that was used, histories of the leading ice cream makers and historical recipes such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi.

        • Are you truly an ice cream lover? Then join the club at www.icescreamers.com.

        • Get your hands on ice cream-making supplies, makers, recipes and trivia at www.makeicecream.com.

        • Have a little fun at www.bombpop.com. The site, geared for kids, gives you a chance to adopt an alien, view animated comic books and play games that include frozen pops.

        • Don't know what to do with that extra liquid nitrogen sitting around the house? You can make ice cream in a jiffy. Find a recipe for vanilla liquid nitrogen ice cream at www.polsci.wvu.edu/Henry/Icecream/Icecream.html. The site illustrates the process with pictures and video.

        • Ice cream trucks make some people feel nostalgic and others nauseous. At www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~rheap you can order your own ice cream truck chime system. The company offers more than 40 songs and three music systems.

        • Whoops! Ice cream can be slippery stuff. For advice on removing ice cream stains, go to doityourself.com/clean/icecream.htm
