National Cherry Popsicle Day

Posted on at

Today, August 26th, is National Cherry Popsicle Day.

Popiscles, also known as ice lollys, ice pops, freeze pops ice blocks and freezer pops are frozen water-based snacks.

Liquid of various types, such as fruit juice, is frozen - usually around a stick, which is then used as a handle to eat the popsicle.

The first recorded ice pop dates back to 1905 and was created by accident, after a drink was left outside overnight with a mixing stick left in it.

The term "popsicle" is actually a brand name, and has become what is known as a generalised trademark used to describe any snack of this type.

Cherry popsicles are, of course, popsicles flavoured with cherry.
