National Grape Popsicle Day

"I require a popsicle every 15 minutes; you obviously did not read the memo." Meatwad, "Aqua Teen Hunger Force"

It's National Grape Popsicle Day!

When I was little, I used to love Sno-Cones. Whenever the ice cream truck (or boat for those of us who lived on a lake in the summer) rolled up (motored up) I ALWAYS got one. And it was a total love affair when I would first start eating it. But somewhere, about halfway through, it always seemed to melt into one flavor/color: grape/purple. EVERY SINGLE TIME. How does strawberry (red), lime (green), and orange (um... orange) turn into grape (purple). What kind of mad science is behind that?!

Don't get me wrong: I love grapes. Just not grape flavored things.

That being said, I wasn't thrilled to celebrate grape popsicle day.

But grape popsicle day with an adult twist (i.e. grape vodka, grape flavored sports drink, and ginger ale)? Let the love affair commence.

Happy National Grape Popsicle Day!
