National Strawberry Ice Cream Day

Today is National Strawberry Ice Cream Day! The ice cream we know and love today evolved from ancient flavored ices. As early as 3000 BC, people in China served their guests sweet juices mixed with ice or snow.

While fruity ice cream flavors are still popular today, vanilla and chocolate are the clear favorites. According to a survey conducted by the International Ice Cream Association, strawberry is the third most popular ice cream flavor, favored by 5.3% of the population.

Did you know that Dolley Madison served strawberry ice cream at President Madison’s second Inaugural Ball in 1813? Treat yourself to a delicious bowl (or two) to celebrate National Strawberry Ice Cream Day!

    The average American eats a whopping 23.2 quarts of ice cream each year. Kudos to you! The ice cream market is flooded with fancy, overwhelming flavors like marshmallow coffee brownie frenzy and caramel raisin cheesecake blast, but hopefully at least part of your ice cream intake is made up of good old fashioned strawberry.
