IT’S NATIONAL CARBONATED BEVERAGE WITH CAFFEINE DAY!
We’re skirting around the issue with the title, it seems. Not wanting to offend anyone, the powers that be decided that we couldn’t specifically call today “Soda Day” or “Pop Day” because that might offend some locals. Or even “Coke Day” might get confused. But seriously, here. Who wants to say that long title every time they want to grab some pop from the fridge?
It also rules out drinks like Root Beer and “lemon-lime flavored fizzy drink” a.k.a. Sprite/Sierra Mist that don’t have caffeine. Or just decaffeinated drinks in general. Could’ve named it Cola Day? But then that would rule out some others. Who knows? This wasn’t our choice! It also wasn’t AK‘s top choice – she very much dislikes the carbonation. In fact, she accused SP of making her drink poison today when we had our lunch.
Just don’t have too much close to bedtime!
Tomorrow is National Peanut Butter Fudge Day.
IT’S NATIONAL LOLLIPOP DAY!
Hard candy’s been around forever. It took civilization centuries to put that hard candy on a stick. Not only that, but people use lollipops for medicinal use, too! Imagine a fentanyl lollipop that just makes you go numb! Sounds illegal.
Well we supported a good cause with the purchase of our lollies.
SP is a jerk.
Tomorrow is National Junk Food Day!
Last Thursday in June!
TODAY IS NATIONAL BOMB POP DAY!
Red, white, and blue. Shaped like America’s favorite export. Near to the 4th of July. It all comes together with the original bomb pop. Many have tried to make their own “patriot pops” but it’s not the same!
Amber waves of grain? Some’n like that. Have a cold treat.
Tomorrow is National Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day and National Gingersnap Day.
Pop goes the sicle?
IT’S NATIONAL GRAPE POPSICLE DAY!
Mad Men – Popsicle Pitch from Paulo Silva on Vimeo.
You know that you’re reaching summer when you first get that taste of popsicle. Whether you froze it yourself from some juice or you got a store-bought brand, there is something very transcendent about the sensation of a popsicle. For many people, it’s a reminder of a time long, long ago. Summer meant freedom and ice cream and play time. And as it’s getting significantly hotter here, we were happy to enjoy the popsicle.
Wait a sec, Popsicle is the name of the brand? Oh how genericization has let us forget. Yes, just like Crock-Pot and Kleenex, Popsicle is just a trademarked name for an ice pop. But still, many people try to attempt their own kind of popsicle. For example, Snapple tried to beat the world record for popsicle size, and uh… disaster struck. My favorite part of that story is that firefighters hosed away the melted goo while people fled to higher ground. Entertaining, to say the least.
We celebrated with the official brand.
Refreshing! A good way to cool off without blasting too much AC.
Tomorrow is National Brisket Day and National Hamburger Day!
