knickerbocker glory is an ice cream sundae that is served in a large tall glass, particularly in the United Kingdom. [1 ]
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. [2 ] [3 ]
knickerbocker glory may be drawn from the hotel or knickerbockers, knee-length trousers typically worn by boys or for sports such as fencing. The name Knickerbocker itself comes from Dutch settlers in the New York area. [4 ]
