The History Of The Popsicle

In 1905, the Popsicle was invented by an eleven-year-old Frank Epperson. Frank Epperson was only 11 years old when he invented the originally named Epsicle. He had left his fruit flavored soda outside on the porch with a stir stick in it. The drink froze to the stick and tasted good. It took 18 more years in 1923 for Epperson to apply for a patent for a "frozen ice on a stick" called the Epsicle ice pop, which his children re-named the Popsicle.

In 1925, Frank Epperson sold his famous Popsicle to the Joe Lowe Company of New York. Good Humor now owns the rights to the Popsicle.

Twin Popsicles (two popsicles sticks together) were invented during the Great Depression. Popsicle sticks were first made from Birch wood.

Without you Frank Epperson, there would be no Riffstick Art Furniture . . . thank you.
