It's National Strawberry Ice Cream Day!

Six strawberry ice cream cones

Did you know that every year on January 15th strawberry flavored ice cream is honored in America? Strawberry ice cream is one of the top 3 most popular ice creams. The top 3 flavors are Vanilla, Chocolate and then Strawberry. Thats insane that the 3 most basic ice cream flavors are the top 3. These three flavors are the OG's of ice cream and are even combined in a flavor called Neapolitan.


History of Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry ice cream is one of the first ice cream flavors ever created. It was first served in 1744. That's a longgggg time ago, to think people were thinking about creative ways to jazz up some ice cream even then. Most strawberry ice creams today add coloring pink or light red so that it looks "More Strawberry". While strawberry ice cream is made by blending fresh strawberries (The healthier route) or strawberry flavoring with eggs, cream, vanilla and sugar. There has to be an alternative for vegans, RIGHT?
