When Frank William Epperson was a boy he was always inventing things. In fact, by the time he was ten years old, he had invented a handcar with two handles (it was twice the speed of the regular one-handled handcars).
But the one thing Frank really loved to experiment with was flavored waters (the kind that hissed and fizzed when you held a glassful up to your ear).
Even though some of Frank’s concoctions were disastrous (just ask his little brother, Cray), he kept on trying.
One day the children decided to make a miniature amusement park in the neighborhood. Frank was in charge of the soda water stand.
Then something odd happened. The temperatures plummeted, which gave Frank an idea.
Frozen soda water on a stick!
Come take a journey on how the popsicle came to be and how one child began a legacy.
