In 1905, Frank Epperson, then 11 years old, left a stir stick in a mixture
of powdered soda and water out in the porch. That night, temperatures in San
Francisco reached a record low. When Epperson woke the next morning, he
discovered the drink had frozen to the stir stick, creating a fruit flavored
'icicle,' a treat he had named the Epsicle.
Eighteen years later, in 1923, Epperson introduced the Epsicle to the public
for the first time at an Alameda, California amusement park, Neptune Beach.
In 1924, Epperson applied for a patent for his "frozen confectionery" called
the Epsicle ice pop.
He renamed it the Popsicle, allegedly at the insistence of his children. It
was originally available in seven flavors and marketed as a "frozen drink on
a stick."
In 1925, Epperson sold the rights to the Popsicle to the Joe Lowe Company of
New York.
Good Humor, a subsidiary of Unilever, now owns the rights.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
