Popsicle

Popsicle was accidently invented by 11-year-old Frank Epperson from California. The popsicles which are a treat to us in summer afternoons was invented when Frank left powder flavoured soda water with a stir stick in it. With the cold weather, the mixture froze. Seventeen years later, Frank came up with iced lollipops which were a huge hit. Image source: img1.sunset.timeinc.net
