This is a refreshing treat for a hot summer day that our family really enjoys. Diet soda can be used to cut calories. We often refer to them as Pop Pops.

This was my review when it was still a personal recipe: I really appreciated this recipe because we wanted a cool treat today but we're quite low on money. My grandma made something like this for us kids when we were small so it was nice to remember her and talk about her a little while we made this recipe. My eldest son helped me make these and we accidentally made a little slip and added a little more than a quarter teaspoon of vanilla extract but it didn't affect the outcome of the pop. We all enjoyed these this afternoon, the kids especially. I thought they were quite sweet but my kids and husband thought they were perfect as is. I'd like to try this for myself as a diet recipe, perhaps using a diet cream soda and eliminating the extra sugar OR using honey as a substitute for the sugar. As is, huge hit with the fam!

I need more stars !!! These were outstanding and so easy. I made first batch using cream soda, second batch using root beer. Both were terrific. Can't wait to try orange crush, red pop, grape soda and..............

I had the honor of making/reviewing this recipe before it was published (Congrats!), and have made it MANYT times since... Here's what I had to say: AWESOME! These tasted even better than I had hoped they would! I went in search of small plastic cups, to no avail, so I just used my popsicle mold and I poured the leftover mixture into an ice cube tray. I made these the night before to allow them to freeze solid. I had an easier time getting them out of the ice cube tray than the popsicle mold (no fault of the recipe, I've always had trouble with this mold). No matter, they were still wonderful with just the right balance of sweetness and flavor. Gabe and I just got finished 'taste testing' them, lol, and we both declared these delicious! Thanks, SHORECOOK, for such a wonderfully refreshing treat, that will be made over and over many times! :)
