The Origin of National Strawberry Ice Cream Day
Strawberry ice cream is a flavor of strawberry or strawberry flavored ice cream. It is made by mixing in fresh or strawberry-flavored strawberries with eggs, cream, vanilla and the sugar used to make ice cream. Most strawberry ice cream is pink or light red. It is believed that the first lady Dolley Madison of the United States invented this ice cream flavor in 1813, and it was served at the second inauguration party of her husband, President James Madison at the White House.
Previously, ice cream was reserved only for royalty and dignitaries. Because to make ice cream costs a lot of electricity. After cheap refrigeration became popular in the 20th century, new ice cream became more available and common to everyone.
