11 Great Popsicle Molds for Upgrading Your Frozen Desserts
Fill your freezer with homemade push pops this summer.
When warmer weather comes around, so does peak frozen dessert season—think ice cream, sorbet, and of course, popsicles. You could buy a box in the grocery store freezer aisle and call it a day, but if you’d rather make your own with real produce, these molds can help. We gathered some of the best-rated popsicle molds out there, like Zoku’s classic pop mold, and some fun shapes, too, in case you feel like creating Ring Pop-esque desserts or want an ice pop shaped like a cactus. Read on to find out where you can get them, and start making room in your freezer.
This classic mold from Zoku got great reviews across Sur La Table, Williams-Sonoma, Bed Bath & Beyond, and more. It comes with reusable pop sticks that have drip guards for minimal mess, and yields six pops total.
Under the Sea
For more of a whimsical, right-on-theme summery treat, Zoku’s fish pop molds are also well-reviewed, with near five-star ratings from both Sur La Table and Bed Bath & Beyond customers. Each pop is shaped like a different character—a shark, clownfish, octopus, whale, puffer fish, and scuba diver—with matching sticks for extra flair.
If you’re a fan of those nostalgic red, white, and blue rocket pops, these molds can help you make them, but feel free to use them to make other ice pops, too.
