National Grape Popsicle Day

Summer is arriving in the northern hemisphere, bringing warm weather.   Today, May 27, is National Grape Popsicle Day.   According to  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.
