We partnered with Popsicle® Brand Ice pops – the Original Summertime Treat – to create this fun Popsicle bar. Popsicle has been bringing the fun with bright colors and bold, icy-cool refreshing flavors since 1905.

What Popsicle Flavors Did We Use?

We featured traditional Orange, Cherry, and Grape Popsicles, along with Jolly Rancher Popsicles and Tropical Paradise Popsicles in our Popsicle bar.

How to Make a Popsicle Bar in Your Backyard

Step 1

Start by adding ice to the disposable baking dishes.

Step 2

Unwrap Popsicle ice pops and place individually in clear plastic cups.

Step 3

Set inside the baking dishes and surround with ice. This will keep the ice pops cold during your party!

How to Serve the Popsicles

Serve the ice pops with lemon-lime soda for a fun, refreshing drink that will become more flavorful as the Popsicle melts.

The kids loved the combination of soda and popsicles. Every one seemed to eat it just a little different way which was part of the fun!

My favorite was the striped pops. They just seemed to have the coolest look on the popsicle bar and rapidly disappeared when the party guests saw them!
