Sent to me by a Proquest executive. Proquest Historical Newspaper Archive is very useful for historical research. I would not have been able to do much on chop suey, Chinese restaurants, fortune cookie and General Tso’s chicken without it.
She sent me an ad for a chop suey sundae…which piqued my curiosity
(Sent to me by a reader) So, a chop suey sundae, according to The Food Section which cited an expired recipe from the National Soda Fountain Guide, is a concoction included raisins, dates, vanilla ice cream, flaked coconut, and chow mein noodles.
This actually is a bit like the popular Indian-Chinese dessert of vanilla ice cream on the crispy chow mein noodles.
