We haven't bought or used a popsicle mold in quite a while. It's one of those tools you have as a kid — or as a mom with kids — but not as an adult. And while we love our ice cream maker, we're nostalgic for simple, old-fashioned popsicles right now.
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!
