National Blueberry Popsicle Day is a bright, delicious holiday dedicated to a dessert loved by millions. This wonderful summer treat is made by freezing the juice. In this a lollipop, all the vitamins that are in blueberries are preserved, and the taste is refreshing.
The dessert has many names – popsicles, ice pop, or ice candy. But since the 1920s in America, a common name has been used – popsicle. The term popsicle symbolizes the popularity of the treat. The inventor of the treat is Frank Epperson. At the age of 11, he accidentally left a fruit drink outside in the winter. As a result, it was frozen in the morning. This happened in 1905; since then, the popsicle’s fame has spread rapidly around the world. Frank turned to Joe Lowe and began selling his delicacy. We can all agree, this was a good idea.
- The boy called his invention epsicle, and it was called this for almost 20 years, then changed to popsicle.
- In 1989, Unilever bought the Joe Lowe company and new flavors appeared. Cherry became the most popular.
- This iced treat is not only sweet but also nutritious – just a handful of blueberries contains about 10% of the required daily intake of vitamin C.
- The energy value of a popsicle is only 44 calories.
- Mankind has been eating blueberries for 13,000 years.
- One blueberry bush produces about 6 pounds of berries per year.
