Popsicles are one of the most refreshing summer treats, but making them can be tricky if it’s your first time. The first step you’ll have to make is buying a new set of popsicle molds, and here’s what you should know before you buy those.


Ice pops are made from many different materials, including plastic, silicone, and stainless steel. Plastic and silicone molds are much cheaper, but the ones made with stainless steel are more durable and popsicles tend to freeze quicker in them.


The size of your freezer should determine the size of popsicle molds you’re buying. If you have a small freezer, or simply can’t free up any space for your popsicles, make sure to pick a smaller set that will fit right in.


You can get as creative as you want when it comes to the shape of your ice pop molds. It all comes down to personal preference, but keep in mind it could be more difficult to properly fill the pops with an unusual shape.
