1905 11 year old Frank Epperson accidentally invents the Popsicle when he leaves his soda pop outside with a swizzle stick and it freezes overnight.
1924 Epperson applies for a patent on his frozen confectionery. The Creamsicle and Fudgesicle soon follow.
1989 Good Humor, a subsidiary of Unilever, buys the rights to the name Popsicle.
2011 Streetpops hit the streets of Cincinnati blowing everyones minds at the City Flea, Findlay Market and everywhere in between.
2012 Streetpops opens a brick and mortar shop and invites us and a bunch of yelper's check it out before the grand opening on March 30th.
Figures, temps in the 80s last week would have been perfect for these piquant little streetpops. But come last night and the air is cool and crisp, a more seasonable March evening. It didn't cool our enthusiasm for eating streetpops at the soft opening though, no way.
Streetpops come in two sizes now, a regular sized pop and a half sized pop. If you haven't had the opportunity to try one yet this is what you get. Flavors that seemingly wouldn't go together but somehow create something incredible, the pineapple habenaro for instance. Then there also flavors that are slam dunks, like the chocolate sea salt, how can that not work? All made with high quality ingredients.
Make sure to walk all the way to Liberty on Main St during the March Final Friday to Streetpops and get yourself something amazing.
