Everything You Need to Know about National Blueberry Popsicle Day

It’s finally here – the day we’ve all been waiting for. That’s right, folks, today is National Blueberry Popsicle Day! To help you make the most of this momentous occasion, we’ve put together a little guide full of everything you need to know about blueberry popsicles. From history to trivia to recipes, we’ve got you covered. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a cool blueberry popsicle (or two).

History of the popsicle

The popsicle was invented quite by accident by an 11-year-old boy in 1905. Young Frank Epperson was stirring soda powder into a cup of water and left it outside overnight with the stirrer still in it. When he awoke the next morning, he found that his drink had frozen solid! He started playing with it and soon realized that he had created something special. Epperson patented his “Epsicle” ice pop in 1924 and started selling them at carnivals and fairs. He eventually changed the name to “Popsicle,” and the rest is history. Today, there are countless flavors and variations of popsicles available, from classic fruity options to more adventurous flavors like chili mango or avocado lime. No matter what your taste, there’s sure to be a popsicle that will hit the spot!

Types of Blueberry Popsicles

Nowadays, there are nearly endless possibilities when it comes to blueberry popsicles. You can find them in a wide variety of flavors, sizes, and shapes. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, you can even make your own at home! Here are just a few of the many types of blueberry popsicles that you can find:

  • Blue raspberry: These popsicles are usually brightly colored and have a tart taste. They’re perfect for those who like their sweets on the sour side.
  • Vanilla bean: Vanilla bean popsicles are infused with real vanilla beans for an ultra-smooth and creamy treat. They’re often speckled with black specks from the vanilla beans themselves.
  • Greek yogurt: If you’re looking for a healthier option, Greek yogurt pops are a great choice. They’re usually lower in sugar than traditional ice cream bars and have added protein from the Greek yogurt itself.
  • Vegan: Vegan friendly? No problem! There are plenty of delicious vegan blueberry pop options out there made with fruit juice or plant-based milk like almond or coconut milk.
