We don't frequent the ice cream
truck too often these days, but we can't say no to the stellar selection of popsicles
at the grocery store. While the weather is still blistering, clear some room in your freezer pronto for these 15 ice pops.
Trader Joe's Cold Brew Latte Dessert Bars ($2):
During a heat wave, the last thing we want in the morning is a hot cup of coffee. A cold brew latte bar, on the other hand, is the type of pick-me-up we crave.
Solero Strawberry Colada Crushed Fruit Bars ($5):
Classic strawberry crushed fruit pops are even better when combined with the tropical flavors of pinapple and coconut. Creamy and frosty, these bars are irresistible no matter the weather outside.
Chloe's Pops Strawberry ($4):
All it takes to get a top-notch pop is fruit, water, and a touch of sugar. You'll taste the difference after the first bite.
Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Bars ($4):
We couldn't leave out this ice cream truck favorite. Vanilla and strawberry ice cream coated in tender shortcake crumbs is just what we crave after a day at the beach.
Outshine Strawberry Fruit Bars ($5):
Fresh summer strawberries are always on our mind whether or not they're in season, and Outshine has captured their essence.
Helados Mexico Pops ($5):
Real fruit juice and just a handful of other ingredients mean these pops balance between the cheap and gourmet.
Jolly Llama Raspberry Sorbet Pops ($5):
Ripe red raspberries don't get enough love. They're like the sophisticated older sibling of strawberries, with a more intense flavor and gorgeous deep-red color.
Modern Pop Frozen Raspberry Pomegranate Fruit Bars ($6):
There's a lot to love about these five-ingredient fruit bars. From the lack of refined sugar (they're sweetened with agave) to the use of real raspberries and not-from-concentrate pomegranate juice, each sweet-tart bite is pure magic.
