The original list inspired countless versions over the centuries, often listing seven entries. Of the original seven wonders, only one — the Great Pyramid of Giza, the oldest of the ancient wonders remains relatively intact. The Colossus of Rhodes, the An ice pop is a water-based frozen breakfast or milk based on a stick. Unlike ice cream or sorbet, which whipped down during freezing to prevent ice crystals from forming, the ice pop “imperceptibly” —freezes at rest — and becomes a solid block of ice. The stick is used as a handle to control it, without which the frozen product is called something else, such as a freezie.

Ice pop can be called Popsicle (Canada, US), freezer pop (US), ice lolly ice pop, (UK, India, Ireland, South Africa), ice block (Australia, New Zealand), or ice drop (Philippines).

Francis William “Frank” Epperson (August 11, 1894, Willows, California – October 22, 1983, Fremont, California) from Oakland or San Francisco, California, popularized ice pops after patenting the concept of “frozen ice on a stick” in 1923.

Epperson claimed to have first created the ice pop in 1905 when he was 11 years old when he accidentally left a glass of powdered lemonade soda and water with a mixing stick on his porch on a cold night, and the story is still printed on the back of the boxes of popsicle treat.

Epperson lived in Oakland and worked as a lemonade salesman.

In 1922, Epperson, a broker for the Realty Syndicate Company in Oakland, introduced Popsicle to a fireman’s ball. The product got traction quickly; in 1923, at the age of 29, Epperson received a patent for his ice pop “Epsicle,” and by 1924, he had patented all processed, frozen confectionery or ice lollipops. He officially introduced Epsicle with seven fruit flavors at the Neptune Beach theme park, marketed as “frozen lollipop” or a “drink on a stick.”

A few years later, Epperson sold the rights to the invention and the Popsicle brand to the Joe Lowe Company in New York City.

In the United States and Canada, frozen ice on a stick is commonly referred to as Popsicle because of the early popularity of the Popsicle brand, and the word has become a genericized brand to mean any ice pop or freezer pop regardless of brand or shape.
