Isn't it amazing how a small thing like a colorful popsicle can take us back to our childhood days?
I still remember, every summer I used to wait for my mom to make me this yummy treat
In days of summer, your body mostly craves for more liquids or semisolids rather than food. With endless flavor possibilities, popsicles are the perfect way to complete any summer meal. I am pretty sure that you must be unaware of the fact that popsicles were invented by Frank Epperson when he was eleven. He discovered it accidentally when he left a glass of soda and water with a stick in his porch on a cold night
