  • Believe it or not, the person who invented the Popsicle® was 11-year old Frank Epperson in 1905! After a day of play, he left his drink with the stirring straw still in it outside in the cold overnight. When Frank went back out the next morning, he found his drink frozen like an icicle. Cool, right? He called it an “Epsicle” and it became a hit with his friends, until he had kids of his own and they called it, “Pop’s ’sicle”. The name stuck and he patented it in 1923 to share his treat with the world.

  • First things first, what is high fructose corn syrup? Well, it’s almost identical to table sugar and honey. High fructose corn syrup is composed of nearly the same amounts of the simple sugars, glucose, and fructose. Glucose serves as a building block for carbohydrates and fructose is commonly found in fruits and honey. We use high fructose corn syrup in certain Popsicle® products to provide sweetness and to contribute to product texture. Want to know more? Contact Popsicle® —we’d love to hear from you!
