America's Best Popsicles

What's better than a frosty popsicle from the freezer on a hot summer day? An artisanal ice pop made with seasonal fruits, local dairy and fresh herbs. American businesses like New York's People's Pops and cheeky Suck It in Los Angeles are creating versions of the frozen treats that don't come with a syrupy sugar high or leave lips stained with artificial dye. Here, Food & Wine names the best popsicles in the U.S.

Owned by two sisters, Irma and Norma Paz, the tiny storefront packs its freezers with two varieties of creative pops: creamy and fruity. Daily offerings cover a floor-to-ceiling blackboard, which also acts as a backdrop for occasional popsicle art. Alongside blueberry lime and creamy banana nut, unconventional flavors range from olive to creamed corn. All can be dipped in chocolate.
