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.
