Just Chill Out Fla-Vor-Ice owes its existence to the Popsicle, which was accidentally invented in 1905 when a San Francisco boy named Frank Epperson left a cup of powdered soda and a stirring stick out on his family's porch, and it froze overnight.
Ten-year-old Becky Schroeder invented The Glow Sheet, Frank Epperson was only 11 when he invented the Popsicle[R] (originally called the "Epp-sicle"), and the "godfather of windsurfing," Peter Chilvers, was 12 when he created the very first sailboard.
When 11-year-old Frank Epperson stumbled upon this summer favourite in San Francisco in the depths of winter in 1905 he was actually trying to invent his own soda pop creation.
