One day, 11-year-old Frank Epperson from Oakland, California, made a sweet drink, stirring all the ingredients with a wooden stick, and left the glass in the backyard.

That night the weather was freezing, and when Epperson discovered the drink the next morning, he saw it frozen. Pulling the wooden stick, he pulled it out and ate it.

It happened in 1905, and 18 years later, Epperson patented Popsicle – the name that he gave to his invention offered by his children means “a sweet soft drink.”

During the 20th century and till now, more and more variations of the beloved summer dessert appear in the United States. And all citizens are celebrating this day every 14th Of August.
