The Popsicle was invented by an 11-year-old who kept it a secret for 18 years…….

Frank Epperson, who in 1905, left a mixture of powdered soda and water out on his porch, which, contained a stir stick. The next morning he discovered it had frozen to the stir stick creating a fruit flavored ice treat that he named: Epsicle.

18 years later he patented it and called it the Popsicle.

 

Happy Friday and thanks for reading.
