A knickerbocker glory is an ice cream sundae that is served in a large tall glass, particularly in the United Kingdom. The knickerbocker glory, first described in the 1930s, may contain ice cream, gelatin, cream, fruit, meringue, even liquor.

Without a Summer by Mary Robinette Kowal. After the volcano on Mount Tambora in Indonesia erupted in 1815, the ash spread around the globe, blocking sunlight.
