Amazing fact of the week: Popsicles
The Popsicle was invented by an 11 year old who kept it secret for 18 years. The inventor was Frank Epperson who left a mixture of powdered soda and water outside, which contained a stick. That night, temperatures in San Francisco reached a record low temperature. When he woke the next morning, he discovered that it had frozen to the stick, creating a fruit flavoured ice treat. 18 years later he patented it and called it the Popsicle.
