Are You Ready for Warheads-Flavored Ice Pops?

‘It’s so sour that it’s almost salty.’

Remember Warheads, the lip-puckering sour candy you used to find out who among your friends was the toughest and most “extreme?”

That classic ‘90s flavor will return this summer in the form of a Warheads ice pop, a collaboration with Bomb Pop, owned by the Blue Bunny ice creamery.

The partnership is thanks to the current resurgence in popularity of sour flavors, a category within which the makers of Warheads are particularly skilled.

“This ice-pop is so sour that we could barely taste the fruit flavor between each lick,” says the team at Fox News, who got to try the Warheads ice pop. “It's so sour that it's almost salty. But that’s a truly authentic Warhead experience, right? Once your mouth adapts to the cold, it’s pretty refreshing, but don’t expect the sour to let up the further down you go. Unlike the candy, the center isn’t sweeter, so it’s a super sour experience from start to finish.”

Warheads ice pops will be available from both your neighborhood ice cream truck and grocery store, though the in-store version is reportedly half the size of the one from the truck — perhaps to keep the experience of chasing down the ice cream truck all the more sacred.

Healthy raspberry ice pops are so easy to make at home. If you can make a smoothie you can easily make healthy raspberry popsicles with real fruit and just a little sweetener. Once you’ve tried your own fresh fruit ice pops you won’t ever go back to store-bought. Provided you follow the tips in this post, you won’t go wrong.

Have you ever tried to make healthy ice pops only to have the fruit juice freeze solid in the mold? So solid that you couldn’t bite it. You could only suck it. It was like a colored ice cube not a Popsicle. That describes my first attempts, as a young mom, to make healthy Popsicles for my kids. I just poured fruit juice into the mold, stuck in the stick, and froze it. Not a great outcome. I gave up for a number of years, buying commercial juice pops instead of trying for another homemade fail.

The ingredient that gives ice pops their soft, bite-able texture is sugar. And sugar isn’t the ingredient I wanted to feed my children regularly. But as a grandma, I’m reexamining my love-hate relationship with homemade ice pops and I’ve made a few discoveries.

How to Make Ice Pops Without a Recipe

The concept is simple: Take whatever odds and ends you have left in your fridge, combine them with some pantry staples, and boom — you’ve got something even better than the original. My love of bestovers is, perhaps, why I have such a soft spot for ice pops, which I consider the ultimate bestovers.

Ice pops (also known as freezer pops, also known as a certain trademarked brand which-shall-not-be-named) are sprung out of creativity, and a nagging desperation for something, anything, new. Not only are they just plain fun to make — you’ll feel like you’re in Arts & Crafts, but you get to eat the result — but they’re refreshing on a sticky, sweltering afternoon. They can also be made in bulk for your neighborhood pool party, and they’re a great activity to get your kids involved in (because it’s never too early to teach the importance of hard work).

Go to your fridge right now. Open it up and dig around — we guarantee you have something that would taste delicious frozen on a stick.

How to Make Ice Pops Without a Recipe

1. Assemble your tools. You will need liquids (or semi-liquids) that you want to freeze and eat, any sort of textural mix-ins (like coconut, chocolate chips, or berries), wooden sticks, and some sort of vessel to freeze in. Feel free to use fancy ice pop molds, but paper cups will do the trick just fine. Clear out a little room in your freezer, and you’re ready to begin.


These are deliciously creamy and so easy to make!

These are really simple and easy to make! They are very creamy and delicious. I added a few mini marshmallows (the tiny crunchy ones.) They don’t stay crunchy but are a really good fit for these pops.

These healthy blueberry Popsicles are quick to make, full of nutritious antioxidants and full fruit flavour. These tasty frozen treats are rich and flavorful but low on sugar. Make enough for the adults to enjoy them too. Make them in the morning and you can pass them out this afternoon. Ready in just 4 or 5 hours.

Healthy Popsicles, ice pops or ice lollies are easy to make and better than the store-bought version. Store-bought Popsicles are high in sugar and low on nutrition. Even the 100% juice ice pops contain other ingredients like:

high fructose corn syrup, juice from concentrate, citric acid, sodium benzoate, and potassium sorbate — two preservatives used to prevent bacterial growth.

The syrup is extensively used in ice pops to keep the frozen pop soft enough to bite. Without the syrup, juice would freeze solid like an ice cube and be difficult to eat. But by adding fruit, fibre, fat, and a little less sweetener, ice pops can be made healthier with fewer ingredients.

Blueberries are superfoods, high in antioxidants, flavonoids, and anthocyanins. In fact, the antioxidants are so high in blueberries that they are prescribed to nourish the eyes. Blueberries are also one of the sweeter berries, allowing you to make Popsicles with less sugar, that still has a good texture.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.

Popsicle cookbook. Seriously! That was my thought process on this when I started.

On the positive: there is a little something for every taste. Well, didn't see any salty popsicles but that's okay. There are sweet heat, wicked sweet, sour. just lots of goodies.

On the downside, some of the recipes are overly complex and call for difficult to find (for me) ingredients.

These wine cocktails pops are delicious

According to @costcodeals, Kirkland's frozen cocktail pops are a much-loved item that have managed to make a comeback right in time for the summer. They're being sold at $13.99 for a pack of 18 ready-to-freeze pouches. And guess what? You're looking at just 100 calories for each pop which makes them a low-calorie treat. Yay!

As per a report by Taste of Home, every pop has 8% ABV. And of course, they're a convenient treat to take with you when you're relaxing outside on a sunny day. One thing that's important to note is that the product's availability will depend on a state's alcohol regulations, so do make it a point to double-check before hunting for this product at your local Costco.

An Instagram user had a suitable comment to offer. They wrote, "Woohoo snagged 2 bags. Best decision ever." Most users commented that they absolutely needed the frozen wine pops for summer. Another shopper specifically recommended the Strawberry and Lime Drop flavors.

Mexican Paletas

If you grew up, as did many Americans, on ice pops made of just colored sugar water, but then one day tried a paleta chock-full of real fruit, you will know what we mean when we say that the Mexican-style Popsicle is a revelation.

Mexico may not have been the birthplace of the ice pop (the history of which is a little fuzzy), but that country certainly has taken the making of these frozen treasures seriously. The funny thing is, though, that in Mexico, “artisan” paletas are not a novelty gourmet item, but rather an everyday occurrence. Even small towns have a ​paleteria, that magical place where frozen treats are made in a myriad of flavors and sold to customers who must take their time to decide on which variety to eat on this occasion.

Fortunately, paletas are super easy to make, so once the weather gets hot, get out the Popsicle molds and mix up a batch of your own. Start with our basic version, then branch out with the variations listed below the recipe.

Coconut Pineapple Ice Pops

How was your weekend? Mine consisted of a lot of donuts (coming soon!), but they were baked so that makes them totally ok. Annddd these ice pops.

I realized a few weeks ago that I don’t have a single ice pop recipe on my site. What?!

I knew I had to fix that and asap because summer is slowly slipping away. So when I had the chance to make a recipe with Almond Breeze’s Almondmilk Coconutmilk, I knew what exactly what to make!

Since the milk has coconut in it as well, I decided to make some coconut pineapple ice pops. You know how some things just go together? Well coconut and pineapple is definitely one thing that goes perfectly together. So, I combined the two into one seriously easy and tasty treat.

With only five ingredients these ice pops are quick to make and a bit healthier too. Plus you make it all right in the blender, which makes for easy cleanup.

I added in a bit of coconut extract and shredded coconut to really make the coconut flavor stand out.

I’ve tried these ice pops a few different ways and I found that blending everything up was much better. You can definitely stir in the shredded coconut before pouring it into the ice pop molds if you prefer. But in my opinion, the shredded coconut was better when it was blended with everything else since that helped break it up a little more.

This recipe will make about 8, so they’re perfect to make ahead of time for a quick and easy snack during the week. Enjoy!

Candy Corn Popsicles

Our Candy Corn Popsicles on Mini Chef Mondays make a delicious fall treat, especially for Halloween entertaining. We make ice pops regularly and this is a combination of my daughter&rsquos favorites! We use fresh fruit and yogurt for the layers. Healthy whole food ingredients for a nutritious dessert.

We love to share and create easy recipes for Mini Chef Mondays so that your kiddos can really enjoy the process. My daughter and I blended up the ingredients to make these last night since she wanted ice pops for breakfast. She can absolutely have ice pops for breakfast with our Candy Corn Ice Pops, why?

The first layer is our pineapple lemonade ice pop recipe which my daughter LOVES. No lie when we go to the store we must get a pineapple to make them. 🙂

Then the next layer is an orange mango ice pop which is super simple and you can make on it&rsquos own too!

The final layer is just our homemade maple yogurt with a bit of milk mixed in. You could easily use flavor extracts to flavor the white if you wanted a different flavor.

When my mini chef woke up this morning she was ALL smiles and ready for her breakfast Candy Corn Ice Pops. We each had one! 🙂 Pssst. This is by far the best ice pop mold we&rsquove found and it looks just like the ice pops you&rsquod get in stores.
