A popsicle or Ice pop is a water based frozen snack. It is known by different names in different parts of the country like Canada ( Popsicle), Ireland / US (Freeze pop), UK (Ice lolly), Australia / New Zealand (Icy pole) and so on.
Ice pops keep us cool during summer days. For kids, there is nothing that can be compared to the fresh fruit flavored posicles.
