The patent truth, did you know…

On a cold night in 1903, eleven-year old Frank Epperson left a mixture of flavored soda water outdoors overnight with a stirring stick left in the container.

The temperature dropped, freezing the mixture that he called Epperson Icicles.

Eighteen years later, Epperson began producing his frozen treats and in 1924 received a patent for his invention the Popsicle.
