In 1905 when 11-year-old Frank Epperson left a mixture of powdered soda, water, and a stirring stick on his front porch he didn’t know he was on the brink of ‘discovering’ what would become one of America’s favorite summer treats.

The cold temperatures that night froze the mixture; leaving young Epperson with something he called the “Epsicle.” It was a hit with his friends and later with his own children, who would constantly ask for “Pop’s ‘sicle”, thereby giving birth to the popsicle!
