If you crave something cool, sweet, and refreshing during the summer—and who doesn't?— consider buying an easy and inexpensive tool to create ice-cold desserts, a set of ice pop molds. While ice cream makers and slushie machines are great ways to create a chilled treat, we rate popsicles and ice pops for their ease and endless possibilities—use fruit juice, puréed fruit, even slices of peach and whole berries, yogurt, ice cream, or sorbet, make striped popsicles or firecracker ones. Any summer celebration is better with homemade popsicles, and a homemade ice pop makes any afternoon special.

With so many options on the market, it's best to keep the type you really need in mind. To streamline your shopping, we've rounded up our top choices for ice pop molds you can score now for this summer.
