National Creamsicle Day

In 1905, eleven-year-old Frank Epperson encased vanilla ice cream inside of frozen fruit juice and called it an Epsicle. His creation is similar to what we now call a Creamsicle, the cool treat which we celebrate today. The Creamsicle has a flat bar shape with rounded ends, vanilla cream at its center, and a fruity ice covering. Because of its two main components, it is sometimes known as a 50-50 bar. The classic flavor is orange, but it comes in a variety of flavors, including raspberry, lime, cherry, grape, and blueberry. It is also available in healthier options, such as low-fat, low-calorie, or sugar-free.

How to Observe National Creamsicle Day
