The night was bitterly cold. By the next morning, the stick he had used to stir the soda had frozen into the mixture.

The young inventor proceeded to lick the soda blend off the stick. He called it the “Epsicle,” naming it after himself. Then he started to sell his invention to neighbors and friends in his area. They all enjoyed the sweet treat. In 1924, he patented his invention and renamed it as “Popsicle.”
