In 1925, Casper Merrill took the milk and cream from the family milk cows and made the “original” Ice Cream Nut Sundae on a Stick, then called Casco® Nut Sundaes. He made those first bars, known today as FatBoy® Nut Sundaes, in a ten-gallon milk can and sold them at the local 4th of July celebration. Soon after, Casper developed his original FatBoy® Ice Cream Sandwich, a much larger than usual ice cream novelty.
Everyone who tried those first Casco® Nut Sundaes® and FatBoy® Ice Cream Sandwiches enjoyed them so much they wanted more. So, Casper began making them on a large scale and soon people all over the Intermountain West were enjoying them.
The original ingredients and recipe have changed very little over the years. Today, folks across the country are eating Casco® Nut Sundaes and FatBoy® Ice Cream Sandwiches and our Sundae Bars and enjoying them just as much as those who enjoyed the first ones during the 4th of July celebration of 1925.
Casper’s Ice Cream, Inc. is still operating in Richmond, Utah. Casper’s grandson is currently managing the company to ensure that the original delicious recipe is tasted throughout the world.
