HISTORY OF POPSICLE’S
In San Francisco, California, in 1905, 11-yr-old Frank Epperson was outside on his porch, mixing water with a white powdered flavoring to make soda. Upon going inside, it left it there, on the porch, with the stirring stick still in it. That night in California, the temperature reached a record low and the following morning, Frank discovered the drink had frozen to the stick. This inspired the fruit-flavored “Popsicle”.
Years later, in 1922, Epperson introduced his treat at a fireman’s ball, found it to be a huge success, and then in 1923, he made and sold his frozen treat-on-a-stick at an amusement park in Alameda, California. In 1924, he applied for a patent for his frozen confectionery, which he called “Epsicle” ice pop. He then renamed it “Popsicle“.
Popsicle’s are one of summertime’s favorite treats, for kids of all ages,
and today honors one of the great flavors; BLUEBERRY!

To lessen the amount of things going into landfills, many items could be donated to charities, given away, re-purposed or recycled in another way.
National Another Look Unlimited Day can be used as the “spring cleaning” of fall to de-clutter your home and simplify your lives while helping out a charity, the less fortunate, the homeless, crafters and etc.
