Frozen Jello Pops

One memory I have from my childhood is my mom making frozen Jello Pops. They were my favorite! She had these Tupperware molds that she made them in and it was such a treat when we got to have them. The texture of these Jello popsicles is so fantastic. They are unlike regular ice pops and the flavor is amazing. They are really quick and easy to make and easy enough for the kids to help.

  10. I’ve been eating these for over 50 years. The original recipe called for 1 cup sugar. I’m on a low carb diet and have been trying to figure out how to make these with substitute sugar. Not having luck so far.
