The California Gold Rush begins, the Eskimo Pie is patented, Jackie Robinson is elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the first Apple Macintosh goes on sale, all on this day.
1922: The Eskimo Pie ice cream treat is patented by Christian K. Nelson of Onawa, Iowa. The patent describes the cold treat as "in its simplest form, a block or brick or frozen confection within an edible container or shell. The core or center may be an ice cream, sherbet, sorbet, ice, or other material congealed by refrigeration." The shell was described as "like that used in coating chocolate candies, although preferably modified to harden at a lower temperature," and not too brittle.
