What's in a Name

Popsicles did not always have that name. The first ice pop came about by accident in 1923. Lemonade salesman Frank Epperson left a glass of lemonade outside one cold night. The next morning he found it frozen solid. After a bit of tinkering, the ice pop was born. He originally named it after himself, the epsicle ice pop.
