NATIONAL BLUEBERRY POPSICLE DAY
National Blueberry Popsicle Day is observed annually on September 2nd. Whether you decide to purchase a box of blueberry-flavored Popsicles or make your own, it’s sure to be a tasty treat! With the end of summer at hand, now is the time to celebrate this National Day.
Popsicles were invented in 1905 by an 11-year old boy named Frank Epperson. One day he left a glass of a fruit-flavored drink with a stirring stick on his porch. Waking the next morning, unusually frigid temperatures froze the beverage solid – hence the beginning of the Popsicle!
