A freezie (Canada), freeze pop (United States), zooper-dooper, juice pop, freezer pop, otter pop, ice-pole, pop stick, icy-pole (Australia), ice pop, popsicle, tip top, lolly (UK), marciano or chupps (Peru), chihiro (Cayman Islands), ice candy (Philippines[1], Japan), chup-chup, sacolé, geladinho, gelinho, dindim (Brazil), or ais batu Malaysia[2] (Malaysia) is a water-based frozen confection. It is made by freezing flavored liquid such as sugar water, fruit juice or purée inside a plastic casing or tube, either round or flat.

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.[3]

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.
