Summer means homemade organic popsicles! And homemade popsicles means you need an awesome set of popsicle molds.

Over the years (for 7+ years in fact) I’ve researched and posted dozen of awesome popsicle molds here and at Eco Ice Pops, so you wouldn’t think there’d be anything new left. Luckily, each summer brings surprises, and I’ve been able to hunt down many new and interesting *BPA-free popsicle molds. Check out the new crew of molds below.
These are one of the two newest popsicle molds I’m most excited about. The amazingly clever stackable design means any family can make homemade popsicles, even with very little extra freezer space. I love the bright colors, and the easy to fill design aspect as well. Each mold is single-serve (major perk), comes with a reusable stick and lid to protect your popsicles. I’m super excited to try these. I also LOVE the adorable Lekue designer pop molds shown below.
My second favorite set of popsicle molds this summer are the new Zoku Mod Pops. They look utterly classic, but elegant plus are so streamlined and space-saving.Each pop is easy to remove thanks to individual molds that sit in a base. There’s also a built-in drip guard – perfect for little ones.
I’m interested in these molds, one because of the shape and two because they’re collapsible when not in use. Anyone with a good collection of popsicle molds knows how much space those sukers take up. Includes reusable sticks and a handy anti-spill base.
These easy removal (peel back), according to OUNONA, molds feature a protective lid, stackable design and are single-serve to boot. I’m fairly intrigued by the unique shape, though wonder if it may make it harder to get the pops out once frozen.
These molds are Zoku’s take on the push pop. Push pops we’ve seen before, but this base is unique and looks so much easier than other push pop molds I’ve used. The molds are spill-resistant and come with reusable lids so you can reseal pops or snacks to finish later.
Over the years Zoku has been releasing sweet character pop molds, and their new safari set is just as adorable as the rest. Each set includes 4 characters, a curious Professor, Parrot, Elephant, and Monkey, and 4 sticks with drip guards. You can mix-and-match the tails to make your own jungle creations, plus molds double as a candy mold; use melted chocolate or candy instead of fruit juice to create lollipops
A basic design that will work with most popsicle recipes plus sized for folks who want smaller pops, each pop mold has smart handle design and a unique built-in drip guard.
We don’t often see tiny pop molds like these, but I like them. While rare, it’s smart to have a set of tiny molds on hand to test popsicle flavors or to use when making popsicles for babies or toddlers.
The pink color of these molds attracted me, but then I got caught up in the design. SO cute for supper pops!
I’ve actually shared this mold set before, but it went away for a while and came back in 2016 with a new, better design. How can you not want to try this bowl design! One one hand it’s a little odd and may make for weird freezer storage, but so unique! Really a must have if you’re a popsicle addict. I like how you can use the mold base as a serving bowl too.
Like all the other stainless steel popsicle molds I’ve seen, these use disposable sticks (major con in my opinion). That said, if you’re looking to avoid plastic and/or silicone, you’ve got few choices. One cool feature of these molds is their classic old-school style – comes in cute paddle style with square or round top. Made with 18/8 Stainless Steel.
*In my popsicle mold guides here at GAGF, I only post molds that are BPA-free to the best of my research ability, but as always, you should research on your own before you buy.
