National Grape Popsicle Day

Ah...the Grape Popsicle.
A childhood favorite, perfect for those hot summer days that are sure to be just around the corner.
There’s nothing like a homemade grape popsicle; except when you have a homemade cake pop to go with it!

The story goes that Frank Epperson, an 11-year-old boy, was the inventor of the Popsicle. I'm sure his mother was none too pleased when he left soda water with a stirring stick in it on the porch overnight, where it froze. However, I'm sure she forgave him when 18 years later he started a business selling what would later be called, the "popsicle".
