What was the popsicle first called?

Frank Epperson

When kid inventor Frank Epperson was 11 years old, he accidentally left his juice and stirrer outside on a cold night. The next morning, his juice was frozen solid. Epperson named the frozen juice creation the Epsicle. Later, his kids convinced him to change the name of his invention to popsicle. This popular treat is now a summer favorite for kids everywhere.
