National Strawberries and Cream Day: 3 unique ways to have strawberries and cream


You just know summer is here when you start eating strawberries and cream. Here are 3 unique ways for you to try the delicious fruit on this, National Strawberries and Cream Day.

May 21 is National Strawberries and Cream Day. Which, to me, is the start of the summer. Why do I think that? Because I basically no longer have to sell my left kidney to afford strawberries. Honestly, they are like three times the price in the winter.

Yet come National Strawberries and Cream Day, you usually see the price of the fruit, along with other fruits, beginning to go down and down and down. They are much more affordable to eat, meaning I no longer have to choose between a pack of strawberries and my weekly shop.
