Creamsicle Fun Facts
- This frozen dessert was invented by Frank Eppperson in 1905, who was successful in his experiment of enclosing vanilla ice cream with a layer of frozen fruit juice when he was 11 years old. He called his invention the “Epsicle” which later became “popsicle”, “creamsicle” and even “dreamsicle”.
- The Creamsicle is vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet. Creamsicle flavors include orange, blue raspberry, lime, grape, cherry and blueberry.
- The Fudgsicle is a chocolate-flavored pop with a texture somewhat similar to ice cream.
- The Dreamsicle is a Creamsicle filled with ice milk instead of ice cream.
- The Popsicle company offers three different types of Creamsicles: 100 calories bars, low-fat pops and sugar free pops
- August 14th is National Creamsicle Day.
- On June 22, 2005, Snapple tried to beat the existing Guinness Book of World Records entry of a 1997 Dutch 21-foot ice pop by attempting to erect a 25-foot ice pop in New York City. The 15.9 tons of frozen juice that had been brought from Edison, New Jersey in a freezer truck melted faster than expected, dashing hopes of a new record. Spectators fled to higher ground as firefighters hosed away the kiwi-strawberry-flavored mess.
- Although it’s officially a brand of frozen popsicle, the Creamsicle craze has touched every market — from cupcakes to cocktails.
