Tomorrow, August 14 is National Creamsicle Day~  A day to enjoy one of summer's simple pleasures.  Orange Creamsicles were my absolute favorite when I was a kid!

This tasty treat was invented by Frank Epperson in 1905.  Epperson was 11 years old when he successfully enclosed a vanilla ice cream slab with a layer of frozen fruit juice.  He named his invention the "Eppsicle."  It later became known as the Popsicle, Creamsicle, and even Dreamsicle. No matter what you call it, it's a wonderful way to cool down on a hot summer day. Enjoy!
