Stock up on gourmet popsicles! | 9Lives
Reading Time: 3 min

I love a good popsicle during summer, they’re one of the best ways to cool off in the Stellenbosch heat and they taste delicious! I recently made my own boozy popsicles (click here to get the recipes), but sometimes we want the convenience of buying perfectly prepared, ready-to-eat popsicles. Look no further; I’ve rounded up a list of the best alcoholic and non-alcoholic gourmet popsicles below!

Pop Secret can be found at the Oranjezicht City Farm Market every weekend, and it’s definitely worth the trip! They offer boozy and non-alcoholic popsicles for between R35 – R45 a pop, and all of their pops are dairy free, sugar free and gluten free, so you don’t even have to feel guilty about having one (or two)!

You can also order their popsicles directly from their website if you feel you need a steady supply of popsicles.

Las Paletas offers handmade artisanal sorbet and dairy lollies, made in small batches from quality ingredients such as real fruit, herbs, spices, nuts and dairy. As an added bonus, they pride themselves on using 100% natural ingredients, free from flavourants, colourants, additives or powdered products in their popsicles.

Look forward to unique flavour combinations such as guava & cheese, coconut lemonade, pineapple and chili, and gooseberry cheesecake among others! The availability of flavours changes seasonally, so don’t expect to find a watermelon popsicle when you can’t find watermelons in the shops! You can buy their popsicles in pop-up shops, at markets and festivals and online, so be sure to keep an eye on their social media to find out where they’ll pop up next!
