3. Popsicle

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Whether by design or by complete accident, the invention of the Popsicle is credited to 11-year old Frank Epperson. It was a freezing cold night in 1905 when little Frank left a cup of powdered drink mix, water and a stirring stick on his porch. He awoke to a frozen drink on a stick and called it the Epsicle. It wasn’t until 1923 that he changed the name to Popsicle and sold the rights to it.
