In 1905, 11-year-old Frank Epperson left a mixture of powdered soda and water outside overnight. The next morning, he discovered that it had frozen to the stir stick creating a fruit flavored treat that he named the epsicle and then it became the popsicle.
#1 Two-Ball Screwball
These colorful icy treats come in blue raspberry and cherry and have a hidden surprise waiting on the bottom of the cup that is "Bubblegum!"
#2 Crunch Bar
The crisp rice mixed into the chocolate shell, a signature of Nestle's Crunch Bar, worked so well with vanilla ice cream and made this frozen treat leagues ahead of any other basic bar out there.
#3 Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich
As long as you let these get a little bit melty, the soft cookie and ice cream were a perfect after-school treat with strawberry, vanilla and chocolate flavors.
Depending on how hot the day was, the nut and chocolates shell may have fallen apart on you as you tried to it especially if you made it to the bit of fudge at the very bottom of the cone.
#5 Ice Cream Cookie
Remember how hard it was to wait for this thing so soften so you could take a bite that wasn't as hard as bricks? Yeah, we still have that problem, because we are still eating these delicious frozen treats.
#6 Snow Cones
No, we are not talking about the fresh type, with your choice of syrup drizzled on top. We are talking the old school wrapped in plastic, served from the depths of a freezer, pre-packaged snow cones.
#7 Strawberry Shortcake
These popsicles are basically frozen cake on a stick. Plus, a little crumbs on the outside gave this treat texture on top of sweetness and look it to a whole new level.
#8 Choco Taco
As a kid, how fun is it to eat something that looks like another thing? That's why the choco taco, a vanilla ice cream treat wrapped up in a chocolate "taco" shell and covered in chocolate.
#9 Push Pops
It felt endlessly exciting to keep licking away at a Push Pop, never knowing when it would eventually end. Even though they made your hands super sticky by the time you were done, these were a perfect summer popsicle.
#10 Cartoons With Bubble Gum Eyes
Whether it was Tweety, Bugs, Bunny or a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, these animated character inspired popsicles were so good even when they were kind of deformed. Plus, you got bubblegum once you were done.
#11 Bomb Pops
Bomb Pops also called "Rocket Pop" or "Firecracker", these popsicles are the highlight of summer and perfect for a super hot day. They come in iconic red-white-blue but also rainbow and watermelon.
