History of Popsicles
Did you know the first popsicle was created by Frank Epperson, an 11-year old boy? He left a cup of soda with the stirring stick still in it on the porch. The soda frozen in the cold overnight and the next morning, the first popsicle was born!
Frank named it the Epsicle and it changed to Pop’s Sicle later on. In 1923, Frank patented his sweet frozen invention and the rest is history!
