Top Five Ice Pop Molds for Summer Fun
Summer is quickly approaching (well, at least in my mind) and there’s nothing like a fruity, icy treat to beat the heat. Not only are these molds creatively designed, the ice pop molds are also affordable.
I’ve selected five popsicle molds which offer unique designs and features. Just fill with your favorite juice and freeze — you’ll be in icy pop heaven!
- Tongue-Twisting Spiral Pops
Consider these spiral shaped ice pop molds to be a roller coaster for your tongue. And, the molds are practical as well. The silicone molds make it easy to remove the frozen pops and are also dishwasher safe (gotta love easy clean-up).
- Retro Rocket Pops
If you’d rather a classic rocket ice pop, these molds from Tovolo will have you reminiscing of childhood. I can almost hear the ice cream truck coming down the street. Layer fruit juices in colored layers (red, white, blue) for the ultimate rocket pop experience!
- Push-Ups for the Kid in You
Kinderville makes these colorful push-up ice pop molds. I loved creamy orange yogurt push-ups as a kids and love this mold design. Just make sure not to push too hard on the bottom of the popsicle or it’ll go spilling onto the ground. I learned this the hard way!
- Ring Pops for the Fashion Conscious
Reminiscent of a candy ring-pop, these volcanic ice pop molds from Prepara are a modern twist the classic candy shape. Little girls will enjoy sporting these stylish pops, especially when filled with colorful berry juices.
- Kickin’ It Old School
There’s something to be said for keeping it simple. This classic vertical ice pop design from Norpro is timeless. Since the mold offers a wider surface area, it’s perfect for creating a swirled design or adding bits of fruit with the juice.
