Did you know...
... that today is National Cherry Popsicle Day? The Popsicle
was originally developed by 11-year-old Frank Epperson in
1905. He had left his fruit-flavored soda outside on the porch with a stir stick in it and the drink froze to the stick. It
took 18 more years for Epperson to apply for a patent for a "frozen ice on a stick" called the Epsicle ice pop, which his children re-named the Popsicle. Celebrate today by ... eating a Popsicle of course! ;-)
