Popsicles, also called ice pops, freezer pops, or ice lollies, are frozen snacks on a stick for easy handling.

Historically, the popsicle has been around since at least 1872. One story has it that the popsicle was created accidentally when a child left a glass of flavored soda water and a stirring stick outside on a cold night.

During the early twentieth century, popsicles became popular treats in California, U.S.A. The name “popsicle” – a combination of the words “pop” and “icicle” – stuck after Popsicle became the dominant brand.

In cities around the world, “paleteros” sell popsicles and other treats from chilly pushcarts.

Children often make their own popsicles at home by freezing fruit juice around a wooden or plastic handle.

In 2005, however, adults in New York City, U.S.A., sought to erect the largest popsicle the world had ever seen. The colossal ice pop stood 25 feet tall and used 17.5 tons of juice. The pop melted faster than expected and had to be washed away with fire hoses.

Foods with faces, such as the popsicle pictured in this tutorial, are a pop culture staple.

For example, Popsicle and Popsi Cool are both members of the collectible Shopkins toy line. Popsicles also feature in the plots of animated films such as Disney’s Zootopia (2016).

​Step by Step Instructions for Drawing​ a Cute Popsicle

How to Draw Cute Popsicle: Step 1

1. Begin by drawing two straight lines, vertical in orientation and parallel to one another. These lines form the sides of the popsicle.

2. Connect the vertical lines at the bottom. Use a straight line, but curve it at each end so that the popsicle’s corners are rounded.

3. Draw a curved line like a quarter of a circle upward from one side of the popsicle. Then, use a series of “U” shaped lines of different sizes to connect the curve to the other side of the popsicle. This forms the top of the popsicle, as well as the teeth marks where a bite was taken out of it.

4. Draw a wavy curved line from the bite to the opposite side of the popsicle. This indicates melted popsicle dripping down the sides.
