Happy Birthday to Me, and Happy National Cherry Popsicle Day

Cherry Popsicle Day

August 26th is my own personal birthday (CakeSpy the website celebrates its birthday on August 1--there is still a chance to enter the giveaway celebrating this momentous occasion!).

August 26 is also, as it happens, National Cherry Popsicle Day. Now, I apologize if I sound ungrateful...but seriously, this is the crappiest holiday I could possibly think of for my birthday. Cherry popsicles suck, dude!

I immediately began to do an inventory of other people's birthdays, and most everyone came up with a cooler food holiday coinciding with their birthday, including my mother on June 28 (National Tapioca Day), my sweetie on September 18 (National Cheeseburger Day!), my sisters on September 14 and May 4 (National Cream Filled Doughnut Day and National Candied Orange Peel Day, respectively), my BFF James on February 2 (not only Groundhog's Day, but also Pisco Sour Day!). 

I started to get angry, and thought to myself, "I could probably make a list of a hundred things I'd rather eat than a cherry popsicle, easy." So I did. It only took like five minutes.

Here are 100 things I'd rather eat than a cherry popsicle.


  1. Vanilla chocolate softserve swirl
  2. Hummingbird cake
  3. Mint chocolate chip whoopie pies
  4. Banana nilla wafer pudding
  5. Reese's peanut butter cups
  6. Princess cake
  7. A soft chocolate chip cookie
  8. Philadelphia butter cake
  9. Gooey butter cake
  10. White chocolate macadamia chip cookie
  11. Butter cake with pink buttercream (birthday cake!)
  12. Rainbow cookie
  13. Zeppole

  69. Toffee
  70. Wellesley fudge cake
  71. Grocery store sheet cake
  72. Egg cream
  73. Black and white cookie
  74. Congo bars
  75. Hermit cookies
  76. Blondie
  77. Brownie
  78. Nanaimo bars
  79. Cherry pie
  80. Cherries Jubilee
  81. Chocolate covered cherries

  95. Yogurt with cherries on the bottom
  96. Flan
  97. Egg tart
  98. Navy bean pie
  99. Angel food cake
  100. Biscotti

Then I started to feel bad about poor cherry popsicles. Surely there must be something I like LESS than cherry popsicles, right? So, OK. Here's my list of things that I think are worse than cherry popsicles. 

  1. Low fat ice cream
  2. Frozen yogurt
  3. Those awful chocolates that look like oranges
  4. Jelly beans
  5. Violet candies
  6. Deep fried Kool-aid
  7. Cherry Jell-O
  8. Fruitcake

So, there you have it. My birthday rant! 

What are YOUR thoughts on Cherry Popsicles? Also, is there a food holiday on YOUR birthday?

Happy birthday! Enjoy as many foods from your top 100 as possible. Would it help if you dipped a cherry popsicle in chocolate? Or Magic Shell? Or frosting? ;)

Happy Birthday Jessie! Everyday is a sweet celebration by you. I always passed on the cherry popsicles for the much better tasting and colored, lime popsicles.

You have mentioned a long list of things to eat on birthday and I think it will take me to celebrate 10-20 birthday parties to eat all these things. So I will rather stay with cherry popsicle, my focus will be on birthday wishes sent by people and of course gifts are also sign of love. I hope you gotta loads of gifts for your birthday. Thanks
