But how was the strawberry flavored ice cream came to light and tasted by our own palate?
Strawberry + Ice Cream = Madness!
The creator or inventor of National Strawberry Ice Cream Day is still unknown. One thing is for sure, strawberry flavored ice cream is a thing even in the time of Alexander the Great. He is known to have loved snow flavored strawberries with nectar and honey. Variations of ice cream and fruit ices go back for thousands of years. As long ago as 3000 BC, people in China would serve their guests sweetened juices mixed with snow or ice shavings. It is believed that the ice cream flavor was popularized by United States by First Lady Dolley Madison during President James Madison’s second inaugural banquet at the White House in 1813. The truth about who brought and invented the flavor is still an on-going question.
As time changes, by mixing cream, milk, sugar, eggs, and other flavorings, we can make different varieties of ice cream flavors and forms. Today, we can have ice creams in almost every restaurant, corner stores, supermarkets and even specialty shops. There is also a holiday of National Ice Cream Day on July 16. We can even make ice cream at home with readily available ice cream makers! Sounds fun, right?
