Popsicles are an ice pop that was created in 1905. Over the years, many variations on Popsicles have been created, ranging from chocolate to fruit flavored and in a variety of colors. Whole fruit Popsicles are ice pops that contain chunks of whole fruit. Citrus and berry fruits freeze the best. You can freeze the fruit in their own juices or use white or red grape juice. For citrus fruits, white grape juice is better, and berries pair nicely with red grape juice.
