[FHCx246] National Blueberry Popsicle

We think this is the last of the popsicle days…


And we’re doing something better than usual!

Blueberry isn’t a normal flavor that you find in popsicles. Grape, orange, cherry, strawberry, etc. etc. but nobody makes an easily-accessible blueberry. Well we struck gold on our outing to the Minnesota State Fair (the best state fair). When taking a break from the┬áCheesy French Onion Monkey Bread from Blue Moon, the food that Andrew Zimmern said was the best new food this year the day after we declared the same, we found ourselves at a cold treat thanks to Minnesota Farmers’ Union and Grand Ole Creamery.

Refreshing ice cream pop, and even had some cake inside!

We really had a lot of fun. Thanks, State Fair!

Tomorrow is International Bacon Day and National Welsh Rarebit Day.



[FHCx239] National Cherry Popsicle Day

Getting specific…


Remember grape popsicle day? Well the Cherry Lobby must have just been counting days and going, “wait a minute…” before they invented cherry popsicle day.

Same popsicles.

Different flavor.

It hasn’t been too hot outside here. But that makes it easier to eat! If it’s slightly cooler where you eat, you don’t get a sticky red mess all over you, making you look like you just murdered something.

Tomorrow is National Banana Lovers’ Day and National Pots De Creme Day!

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!
