Ice Pop

August 26, 2012 by  

Ice Pop, An ice pop, or freezer pop, also referred to in the United States as a popsicle, and in the United Kingdom as an ice lolly, lolly ice, ice lollipop or simply lollipop, is a water-based frozen snack. It is made by freezing flavored liquid (such as fruit juice) around a stick. Often, the juice is colored artificially.

Once the liquid freezes solid, the stick can be used as a handle to hold the ice pop. Other types of ice pops come in plastic sleeves, with no stick, and come ready to freeze by the consumer, so no refrigeration is necessary during storage.

In the United States and Canada frozen ice on a stick is generically referred to as a popsicle due to the early popularity of the Popsicle brand, and the word has become a genericized trademark to mean any ice pop or freezer pop, regardless of brand or format. In the USA they are also called an ice pop or freezer pop.

In Ireland the product is also referred to as a freeze pop. Ice block is used in parts of Australia and New Zealand, as well as icy pole, after a brand of the same name. The term ice pop, freezer pop or freezie is used for a frozen dessert with no stick, packaged in round plastic sleeves (such as La Fiesta), or in flat plastic sleeves (such as Otter Pops), and eaten by cutting off an end of the sleeve and pushing up the ice.
