The History Of and a Cocktail Recipe for National Creamsicle Day

I used to love ice cream day at school! I couldn't wait to get an orange creamsicle. I still love them to this day. There is just something about the orange sherbert and vanilla ice cream! Come on in for a little history lesson and my favorite summertime cocktail!


"Creamsicles date back to the early 20th century when Frank Epperson accidentally created what would later become known as the Popsicle. As the story goes, Epperson left a concoction of fruit juice and water outside overnight when the temperatures dropped below freezing. When he found the frozen mix the next morning, with a stir stick frozen in the middle, the Popsicle was born.

Epperson first began selling his frozen fruit juice treat to classmates and then friends throughout his community. He marketed his icy treat as a “frozen drink on a stick.” He was granted a patent years later in 1924. This was perfect timing for Epperson, given the fact it was discovered that a couple of guys had been similarly experimenting with ‘frozen suckers’ as far back as 1872, which they called the Hokey-Pokey.

During the Great Depression, the Twin Popsicle was invented and sold for only a nickel. This allowed parents to buy one ice pop and have two children share at an inexpensive price.

Today, Creamsicle is a brand owned by Good Humor, a subsidiary of Unilever. Famous flavors besides the orange Creamsicle are cherry, grape, lime, blue raspberry, and blueberry. Now, you can find sugar-free Popsicles, 100-calorie Popsicles, and many new combinations of flavors.

Take a few minutes today to savor one of the summer’s small pleasures and celebrate the history of the Creamsicle!"
