Although “Creamsicle”, is a brand name for ice cream, many people use it to describe similar ice creams. Creamsicle’s original version is vanilla ice cream on an ice lollystick with orange juice coating. Although orange was the original flavor, there are many other flavors available. You can choose from blueberry, grape, and strawberry.
There are many variations of Creamsicle. Fudgsicle is a chocolate-flavored pop with a texture very similar to ice cream. A Dreamsicle is also available, which uses ice milk instead of ice cream. Creamsicle also offers sugar-free and low-fat pops. This means that even if you’re on a diet or watching your calories, you don’t have to give up on Creamsicle. You can still enjoy the creamsicle and indulge! What flavor will you choose?
Frank Epperson, an 11-year-old inventor, created the original Epsicle in 1905. He experimented with mixing fruit juice and vanilla ice cream. Original Epsicle was made with orange juice. Later, it became a creamsicle, popsicle, and dreamsicle. They are now available in many flavors: orange, blue raspberry, grape, cherry, and even blueberry.
Since their inception, this cold delight has been a mainstay of summertime ice-cream trucks. They are served at many warm locations and have been around since then. People have been trying different creamsicles in various locations and areas. The Long Island ones are more about the orange than the strong vanilla. In Florida, you get a tiny amount of vanilla and an insane amount of orange.
One would think that National Creamsicle Day would end with people going out to get Creamsicles. You couldn’t be more wrong. You can find them in grocery stores and markets today in large boxes. They are individually wrapped or even in small packs for a few Creamsicles. Perfect for the whole family.

One could make them at home. You can make it a family project or experiment with different flavors. Mix together vanilla ice cream and fruit juice in a large bowl.
Next, add milk slowly but carefully while mixing. Finally, add the mixture to small cups. Place them in a freezer. Once they have frozen partially, insert Popsicle sticks and lollipop sticks and then carefully place them back inside. Once the creamsicle has frozen, you can remove the paper cups from the freezer.
