A NEW FROYO FLAVOR: STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE
This week we introduced a new froyo flavor. Behold, Strawberry Shortcake. Count yourself lucky, before the 19th century you could only enjoy strawberry shortcakes from mid-June to early July. Imagine having but a mere three-week window to dive into this delightful masterpiece of classic summer flavors.
STRAWBERRIES WERE SEASONAL DESSERTS
This is because berries used to be seasonal—like eggnog and pumpkin spiced lattes. When you must wait 48 weeks out of the year for a certain berry, it’s no wonder people created special occasions for celebrating the return of the fruit. Specifically, they would celebrate the return of strawberries by having shortcake parties around the month of June.
PUTTING THE SHORT IN SHORTCAKE
Today the name shortcake is almost a misnomer. Most people make strawberry shortcakes out of sponge cake. And yet some still use a biscuit-like base. Originally, however, it was made with crumbling and lots of shortening. That’s where the shortcake got its name, from all the shortening used to hold the crumbling together.
