Edible Rhody Kids: Ice Pops
Can you match the ice pop with the country it’s from?
Ice Pop Molds
When making ice pops at home, you will need a container or mold to hold the liquid while it freezes and a stick to hold your frozen treat while you eat it!
• Homemade Molds: Freeze liquid in a small paper cup with a wood popsicle stick.
• Store Bought Molds: Many shapes and sizes to choose from including rocket ships! Some store bought molds (like Zoku) even come with their own storage container.
Shop Local: Stock on Hope Street in Providence carries a variety of ice pop molds. StockPVD.com
Folks have been enjoying frozen syrupy treats since as far back as Ancient Roman times but it was not until 1905, when Frank Epperson, an 11-year-old boy from California, discovered the fun of eating this treat on a stick. He accidentally left a glass filled with water, powdered soda mix and a wooden stirring stick outside overnight, and it froze. Voila-the Popsicle was born!
