Plus, the molds are way more sophisticated than they used to be... We're sure plenty of dollar stores and local drugstores have generic plastic molds on the cheap, but here are a few we rounded up online.
Cuisipro Sailboat Pop Mold, $19.95 at Amazon (above). Cuisipro makes several shapes, including rockets if you want to attempt the traditional red, white, and blue pops, but we thought these were pretty cute.Tovolo Popsicle Mold, $9.99 at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. You can grab each of these individually, rather than having to take the entire mold out of the freezer to get one pop. Norpro Ice Pop Maker, $14.99 at Amazon. We like the classic wooden sticks and clean design. Lekue Silicone Ice Pop Mold, $10.50 for 4 at ShopFosters.com. You squeeze the pop up from the bottom of this silicone mold. Less mess!
