Ice lolly

water-based frozen confection on a stick

An ice lolly, ice lollipop, or ice pop, is a frozen snack of flavoured ice. It is made by freezing flavoured liquid (such as fruit juice) or cream around a wooden stick.[1] Once the liquid freezes solid, the stick can be used as a handle to hold the ice pop. In the United States, the snack is also referred to as a popsicle after the brand.

A green ice pop

In the city of Liverpool, UK, they use the actual term Lolly Ice as it is a Lolly made of ice, not Ice made of Lolly.

Term usage in UK, USA and CanadaEdit

The term ice lolly is used primarily in the United Kingdom, with variations used in other English-speaking countries. In the United States and Canada, the same frozen snack is often termed a 'popsicle' or 'ice pop'. The term has also been used as branding for the tourism website [2] Ice Lolly.
