The first popsicle was accidentally invented by 11-year-old Frank Epperson in 1905. After leaving his soda outside during a cold night with a stirring stick in it, he woke to find the soda frozen to the stick. Frank patented the idea 18 years later when his children began calling it “Pop’s ‘sicle”.
The first ice cream man sold Popsicles to children in Nebraska from a horse-drawn carriage.
