Popsicle, freeze pop, ice lolly, ice block, icy pole, chihiro, whatever you call these water based frozen snacks, nothing beats the fresh from the freezer icy notes of an ice pop on a hot summer's day.
Ice pops also make for a good alternative to ice cream when you want a lighter refreshing snack plus there are a multitude of ice pop recipes to choose from so you'll still get your flavour fix.
