Prominent brands include Fun Pops, Kisko Nice N Juicy, La Fiesta, California Snow, Otter Pops, Ice Tickles, Calippo, Fla-Vor-Ice, Chilly Willy (after the cartoon penguin of the same name), Pop-ice, Foxy Pop, (in the UK, Ireland, Canada and France) Mr Freeze, Kisko Freezies and Bon Ice. They are produced in a variety of fruit flavors, including cherry, orange, lemon-lime, banana and fruit punch.
Kisko began producing Freezies/Mr. Freeze in Canada in 1977, having relocated the business from Jamaica.
Since freezies come in plastic sleeves, unlike popsicles, no refrigeration is necessary during storage. It also does not need to be frozen as solidly as a popsicle and can well have a consistency similar to that of a slushie.
