History of the Creamsicle

Happy National Creamsicle Day! Did you know that the creamsicle was made in 1905 by 11-year-old Frank Epperson who experimented with putting fruit juice around vanilla ice cream? He called his creation the “epsicle” which later became known as a popsicle, creamsicle, and dreamsicle! The original flavor was orange, but today you can find them in many different flavors like blue raspberry, lime, grape, cherry, and blueberry! Read on to check out a recipe for an Authentic Florida Creamsicle!


Creamsicle is actually a brand name, but it has become so synonymous with that kind of ice cream that many people call other versions creamsicle as well. The company also made the Fudgesicle and the Dreamsicle (which contains ice milk rather than ice cream)!
