Nothing quite makes us as nostalgic of our childhood summers as eating a good ‘ole popsicle. The frozen treat was actually invented in the 1900s by an 11 year-old boy named Frank Epperson. He left a glass of water with powdered soda mix and a wooden stirrer in it outside and it froze overnight. The next day, he ran it under hot water and the popsicle was born! Although, the treats were initially named ‘Eppsicles’ the inventor’s kids insisted on calling them ‘Pop’s Sicles’ and the name has stuck ever since.

If you want to recapture your youth without having to resort to buying popsicles filled with dyes and sugar at the grocery store, you can easily make them at home with this guide on How to Make Healthy Dairy-Free Popsicles. Lacking inspiration? Check out these 10 Vegan Popsicles to Make Your Summer Cool and Fun! and these 6 Popsicles You Gotta Have Before The End of Summer.
