Five Words You Didn’t Know Were Actually Brand Names | Primer

Popsicle - Orange Cherry GrapeThe treat was discovered by accident in 1905, when an 11-year-old boy named Frank Epperson left a mixed powder drink outside overnight, with the stirring stick still in it.

The temperatures plummeted overnight and Frank discovered the “frozen drink on a stick” the next morning.

Somehow, he kept this idea to himself for 18 years and he eventually introduced it at the Neptune Beach amusement park in California. Seeing that people clearly were into the frozen confectionery, he applied for a patent under the name “the Epsicle ice pop”.

Apparently his kids suggested he change it to “Popsicle”.
