Today's Reason to Celebrate

August 26, 2014 is

National Cherry Popsicle Day

It’s National Cherry Popsicle Day! According to legend, an eleven-year-old boy named Frank Epperson accidentally invented the popsicle in 1905. He was stirring up a soft drink when he got distracted and left the cup and the stirring stick out on his front porch overnight. The next morning he discovered a delicious frozen treat with a convenient stick handle!

Nowadays, popsicles are quite a fashionable dessert. Today we celebrate the classic cherry-flavored variety, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Gourmet popsicle shops turn out dozens of unique flavors—avocado, hibiscus, chai, cranberry cosmopolitan, cucumber-jalapeño, and many more.

To celebrate National Cherry Popsicle Day, make your own homemade popsicles! Team up with some friends to invent a totally unique flavor or put a twist on a classic.
