      NATIONAL GRAPE POPSICLE DAY – May 27

      National Grape Popsicle Day May 27
      National Grape Popsicle Day May 27

      NATIONAL GRAPE POPSICLE DAY

      May 27 calls for warm weather and sunshine so we can recognize National Grape Popsicle Day.
      In San Francisco, California, in 1905, 11-yr-old Frank Epperson was outside on his porch, mixing water with a white powdered flavoring to make soda.  Upon going inside, he left it there on the porch with the stirring stick still in it.  That night the temperature reached a record low and the following morning, Frank discovered the drink had frozen to the stick.Years later, in 1922, Epperson introduced his treat at a fireman’s ball where it was a huge success. Then in 1923, he made and sold his frozen treat-on-a-stick at an amusement park in Alameda, California.  Epperson applied for a patent in 1924 for his frozen confectionery, which he called “Epsicle” ice pop.  He then renamed it “Popsicle“.
      Popsicles are one of summertime’s favorite treats for kids of all ages. National Grape Popsicle Day honors one of the most popular flavors!

      • From the "Chess Coliseum" (aka, the Science/Art Lab)...

        Josh "BatJosh" Meyer beat his opponent early to advance to the semifinals, as did Jordan "LordOfTheBoards" Wecker.  Jordan however was defeated by the Mick "Walrus" Sause (who defeated his sister, Helen; aka "Prussia") in the semifinals.  Walrus has now made it to the final round in the tournament for a chance to win the $25 Amazon gift card!!  Kyran Finley and Mitch Haberkorn duked it out to a stalemate, so they will replay for a winner next week.
