National Grape Popsicle Day

Summer is arriving in the northern hemisphere, bringing warm weather.   Today, May 27, is National Grape Popsicle Day.   According to http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com  this all began in San Francisco, California in 1905.   They say that 11 year old Frank Epperson was outside on his porch, mixing water with a white powdered flavoring to make soda.   Upon going inside, he left it there on the porch with the stirring stick still in it.   That night the temperature reached a record low and the following morning, Frank discovered the drink had frozen to the stick.   The Popsicle was born.   It is a warm weather favorite for all ages and comes in many flavors.   Today perhaps we will enjoy a Popsicle.
