What did 11-year-old Frank Epperson create on a cold winter's night in 1905?

Answer:

Popsicle

The Popsicle was accidentally invented by Frank Epperson when he was just eleven years old. On a winter night in 1905, he mixed a soft drink made with soda water powder and water – a popular concoction at the time. He left a stirring stick in it and mistakenly left it on the porch overnight. Epperson found the fruit-flavored substance frozen to the stick when he awoke the next morning. More than 18 years later, Epperson applied for a patent on his “frozen ice on a stick.” He inititionally called novelty the “Eppsicle” ice pop, but it was later renamed to Popsicle.
