Today is National Blueberry Popsicle Day!

Today is National Blueberry Popsicle Day..a fitting end to Summer!

The birth of the Popsicle:  

In 1905 an 11-year old boy named Frank Epperson accidentally invented the Popsicle!   One day he left a glass with a mix of powdered soda, water and a stirring stick on his porch.  When he woke the next morning, the drink was frozen. He named it the Epsicle and all his friends loved it. He eventually changed the name to Popsicle….a bit more marketable! So grab a single or a box and turn your tongue blue!

Enjoy—Finch!
