Homes July 2013, or 2113, I can't recall

Some venture to propose a very early date for the advent of the popsicle, situating its origination within the dark and balmy tents of Mesopotamian armies burning their sun-scorched faces with icy mixtures of chip crystals laced with flavored syrups. others are more cautious with their histories, gesturing to turn-of-the-century weather implausibilities: these theorists identify a frigid californian evening, and pinpoint boys' experiments with cola chemistry and the easy forgetfulness of youth. And yet, what of comestible histories does determine the current and longstanding tastiness of the midsummer night's frigid treat? I leave that to the flavorish scholars of longstanding repute to determine.
