Blueberry Popsicle Day of the USA

01 Sep 2020  Tue

Today is National Blueberry Popsicle Day! Blueberry popsicles are a delightful summer treat, especially when they're made with fresh-squeezed blueberry juice.

Popsicles were invented in 1905 by an eleven-year-old boy named Frank Epperson. One winter's night he accidentally left a fruit-flavored drink with a stirring stick on his porch. In the morning, it was the frozen treat we all know and love.

Frank called his invention the "Epsicle," but the name was changed to "popsicle" eighteen years later. The day is celebrated by devouring popsicles with Blueberry flavors which are either homemade or store-bought! Either way, the treat is a tasty one!

USPS issued a set of 12 stamps with the theme “frozen treats”. Among which one stamp depicts a blueberry a Popsicle.
