Favorite Popsicle Molds

  • 10 Pop Silicone Mold – I like this popsicle mold because it is large and makes the shape of popsicle I remember as a child. It can be used with traditional popsicle sticks and makes 10 pudding pops at a time (pictured above).
  • Disposable Ice Pop Bags – This set of 125 disposable ice popsicle mold bags is reminiscent of the ice pops we would pull out of the ice chest on hot summer days. This would work really well for these vanilla pudding pops.
  • Silicon Popsicle Molds with Lids – If you want the more earth-friendly version of the ice pop bags, then check out these cool mulit-colored ice pop molds with lids making it easy to take along and less messy to eat.
  • Mini Pop Molds – Make 7 of the cutest little egg bites lollipop style popsicles.
