Hall Menus

Frank Epperson, an eleven-year-old from the San Francisco Bay Area, invented the first Popsicle® ice pop in 1905. After a long day, Frank left a cup of soda with a stirring stick on the porch overnight, and it froze. Curious, Frank tasted the frozen soda, leading to the creation of the Popsicle. Originally named the Epsicle, the treat quickly became a neighbourhood favourite. Frank expanded by selling Epsicles at Neptune Beach, a popular amusement park. The Epsicles were a hit, and Frank patented his invention in 1924, detailing the ideal specifications for an ice pop, including recommendations on the best wood for the stick: wood-bass, birch, or poplar. His children later convinced him to rename to what they called it: a Popsicle®. In the late 1920s, Frank sold the rights to his creation to the Joe Lowe Co., catapulting the Popsicle® to nationwide fame.

The hottest pepper in the world is the Pepper X, grown by Ed Currie of the PuckerButt Pepper Company in South Carolina. It dethroned the Caroline Reaper (also created by Currie) in October 2023 and now holds the Guinness World Record title. It clocked in at just under 2.7 million Scoville Heat Units, the scale used to rank how spicy peppers are. The Reaper averaged 1.64 million SHU and peaked at about 2.2 million SHU. For comparison, a jalapeño registers about 2,500 to 8,000 SHU and cayenne peppers ten to be 30,000 to 50,000 SHU. According to Guinness World Records, Currie crossbreeds over 100 peppers each year in the hopes that, over a 10-year process, it will yield a new spicy pepper or two.
