According to the National Day Calendar today is
National Strawberry Ice Cream Day!
Each year, National Strawberry Ice Cream Day on January 15th celebrates one of the choicest flavors of ice cream. All flavors of ice cream are recognized on July 1st.
Strawberry ice cream is made by blending either strawberries or strawberry flavoring with eggs, cream, vanilla, and sugar. Food coloring is often used to give it the pink or light red hue.
During James Madison’s second inauguration in 1813, strawberry ice cream was served. It’s also one of the three flavors found in Neapolitan ice cream along with vanilla and chocolate. Other variations of strawberry ice cream include strawberry cheesecake ice cream and strawberry ripple ice cream.
NATIONAL STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM HISTORY DAY HISTORY
National Day Calendar continues to pursue the origins of this frozen food holiday. While we do, we promise, there will be more ice cream days to celebrate in the days to come. And in between, there will be cake days. And donut days, too. Also, don’t forget the cookie days that we will most certainly sandwich our ice cream between.
