Frank Epperson was just 11 years old in 1905 when he forgot his cup of soda, with a stirring stick still inside, out on his porch.
In the morning, he found the drink frozen solid, but with the handy stick in it. Our favorite summer icy sweet was on its way to being created. Epperson called them Epsicles, but the other kids called them “Pop’s ‘sicles,” and now we know them as Popsicles. Cool!
