Today's Reason to Celebrate

National Blueberry Popsicle Day

Today is National Blueberry Popsicle Day! Blueberry popsicles are a delightful summer treat, especially when they're made with fresh-squeezed blueberry juice. 

Popsicles were invented in 1905 by an eleven-year-old boy named Frank Epperson. One winter's night he accidentally left a fruit-flavored drink with a stirring stick on his porch. In the morning, it was the frozen treat we all know and love. Frank called his invention the "Epsicle," but the name was changed to "popsicle" eighteen years later.

To celebrate National Blueberry Popsicle Day, purchase a pack of blueberry popsicles or make your own homemade version. Enjoy!
