Creamsicles are another brand name of Popsicles characterized by vanilla ice cream that has been covered with a layer of ice. As such, credit goes to Frank Epperson in a roundabout way; click on the link for the interesting story behind the invention of this tasty treat, which was yet another “happy accident” as so many of the foods we are honoring for this challenge are.
Creamsicles are available in a variety of flavors, but the most common (and best) is orange. Other flavors have included, at various times, raspberry, lime, grape, cherry, and blueberry. They are available in three varieties: 100-calorie bars, low-fat bars, and sugar-free bars. Creamsicles are occasionally referred to as “50-50 bars.”
Honoring today’s food was as easy as picking up a box from the grocery store and licking. Both of which we accomplished in short order.
