Summer popsicle 07-18

What's summer without popsicles? This has been the warmest spring and summer in Norway since I moved to Norway in 1989. I am ashamed to admit it, but I have complained - yes, complained - about it being too hot. So, I have used the weather as an excess for eating way too many popsicles this summer. As usual, I got curious about the origins of the popsicle and found out that an 11-year-old boy accidentally invented the popsicle in 1905. The article "How An 11-Year-Old Boy Invented The Popsicle" at npr.org is very interesting and has several images from the early 1900's.
