The Invention of the Popsicle

According to Discovery Street Tours, the popsicle was invented in 1905 by 11-year-old Frank Epperson in Oakland, CA, when he left a fruit drink with a stick in it outside on a cold night.  He patented it in 1923, calling it the "Epsicle," and later renamed it to the Popsicle.  He also devised the sharable popsicle with two sticks.
