It is believed that the ice cream flavor, which is now popular around the world, was invented in 1813 in the United States by First Lady Dolley Madison, and it was served during her husband, President James Madison’s second inaugural banquet at the White House.

Used as Medicine

Strawberries, a member of the rose family, were consumed by our ancestors for its medicinal purposes. The ancient Romans thought that the fruit could cure depression, sadness and kidney stones.

Modern day studies have shown that strawberries are a good source of Vitamin C and consumption of the fruit can reduce the levels of bad cholesterol in humans.

The holiday is also known as National Strawberry Ice Cream Day in the United States.

How to Celebrate?

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Strawberry ice cream to be more precise. Here are some ways to honor this hugely popular ice cream:

  • Celebrate the day with strawberry ice cream. Have strawberry ice cream for all your meals during the day.
  • Make your own strawberry ice cream at home.
  • What about adding new flavors like balsamic vinegar and mint to your tried and tested strawberry ice cream recipe?

Did You Know…

…that botanically, a strawberry is not a fruit at all? Instead, it is a receptacle - the thick part of a stem from which a flower grows.
