The knickerbocker glory, first described in the 1930s, may contain ice cream, gelatin, cream, fruit, meringue, even liquor. Layers of these different sweet tastes are alternated in a tall glass and topped with different kinds of syrup, nuts, whipped cream and often a cherry.
The name knickerbocker glory may be drawn from Chicago Hotel, knickerbockers, knee-length trousers for children, particularly boys, in the past, and those engaged in outdoor activities such as sports, golf, baseball, cycling, and climbing. The name knickerbocker itself comes from Dutch settlers in the New York area.
