National Blueberry Popsicle Day

Posted on at

Today, September 2nd, is National Blueberry Popsicle Day.

Yes, another popsicle day. Blueberries, despite their name, are not so much blue as indigo (between blue and violet). Blueberries that are bought commercially come from species that are native to eastern and north-central North America. Blueberries were for years, and sometimes still are, hand picked, especially the more delicate varieties. Another method of "picking" them is by simply shaking the plant. Blueberries are a sweet fruit and are, unlike so many fruit called berries, actually a berry in the botanical sense.

A blueberry popsicle is an ice lolly or ice pop flavoured with blueberries. Although they may not have much actual blueberry in them.
