Top 10 Vegan Popsicle & Ice Pop Brands

Are popsicles & ice pops vegan? Sometimes yes and sometimes no. The truth is, Popsicle is actually a trademarked term referring to a certain brand of frozen ice on a stick – even though most people use it as a generic term. But, either way, both popsicles and ice pops are usually vegan (especially if they are fruit based).

The main thing to beware of is dairy in chocolate or non-fruit flavors.

That said, there are tons of vegan popsicles and ice pop brands to choose from and we have a list of 10 right here…

Let’s move onto the list!

PS: There’s an awesome ice pop related video at the end you’ll want to see so be sure to read all the way through.
