Today we are celebrating National Creamsicle Day, a delightfully frozen ice cream dessert and fruit all in one!
Did you know that this popular summertime treat was actually discovered by sheer accident?
It appears that back in 1905, eleven year old San Francisco Bay area Frank Epperson had been experimenting on enclosing vanilla ice cream with a layer of fruit juice.
The next morning he realized that he left the mixture out overnight and due to the cold night air… was now completely frozen!
He decided to call his invention the “Epsicle” which has since been named and renamed “Popsicle” or “Creamsicle”.
Today’s iHoliday Twist on National Creamsicle Day has found it’s way into the world of cocktails, including a Halloween Bourbon Creamsicle, and a Spooky Orange Creamsicle Martini, making this holiday an easy one to celebrate in oh so many ways!
Happy National Creamsicle Day!
