Cheers! Moscato, or muscat in Italian, is one versatile grape variety. Moscato grapes can be white or near black with flavors that create sweet dessert wines or dry and floral wines. National Moscato Day was created for this wildly popular wine in 2012 by Gallo Family Vineyards. Our pick: La Perlina Moscato. Find out why this wine is under the heading "Interesting Wines" at Caron's.

The biscuit has been a southern staple since before the Civil War. Its popularity skyrocketed when people realized biscuits absorbed gravy better than plain bread. Safe to say biscuits and gravy continues to be a breakfast favorite. Have you tried the spicy biscuits and gravy served up at Josie's in Chevy Chase? Heavenly.

Popsicles were invented by accident in 1905 by Frank Epperson. Epperson, 11 at the time, created this treat that is beloved by children and adults alike by leaving a stirring stick in a drink mix outside on a record cold night. While grape is one of the most popular flavors, the humble popsicle has gone gourmet. Check out at Steel City Pops at The Summit.
