National Strawberries and Cream Day

"Doubtless God could have made a better berry (than the strawberry), but doubtless God never did." - William Allen Butler

It's National Strawberries and Cream Day!

People often ask how do "food holidays" become food holidays (which are really just observances held in honor of a certain food)? Usually they're created by food bloggers, public relation firms, or even constituents who introduce petitions to governmental bodies for a commemorative day or event to be created.

That being said... no one is quite sure how "Strawberries and Cream" day came to be. If ya ask me, sounds like a buncha dairy industry propaganda.

But, man, it tastes so good.

Happy National Strawberries and Cream Day!
