Cherry on Top: What makes any dessert better? The whipped cream and cherry on top! Nicquid Cherry on top takes it cue from this. Sweet ripe red cherry flavor mixed with fluffy and sweet cream notes. NicQuip: Although no one knows for sure, one of the most popular stories on the invention of the ice cream sundae was that it was invented by Chester Platt who owned the Platt & Colt's drugstore in 1893. Platt prepared a dish of vanilla ice cream for the Reverend John Scott on a Sunday. Chester Platt spiced up the ice cream with cherry syrup and a candied cherry. Reverend Scott named the dish after the day. One thing we know for sure is no sundae is complete without the whip cream and cherry on top, and neither was our NicQuid line up until the addition of Cherry on Top!
