Popsicle

The PopsicleInvented by Frank Epperson

Frank Epperson was born in 1894 in San Fansisco.

One winter night when he was 11, Frank mixed a soft drink with soda water powder and water. He left it out overnight and it froze, creating the popsicle.

He began making the popsicles for his friends, and in 1923 he filed a patent for them.

They had originally been called Epsicles, after Frank Epperson, but his children called them Pop's sicles and the name stuck.

In the early 1920s around 8,000 popsicles were sold a day at Coney Island.
