A freezie, freeze pop (United States), freezer pop, ice-pole, pop stick, icy-pole, ice pop, tip top, chihiro (Cayman Islands), ice candy (Philippines),[1] aiskrim[2] or potong (Malaysia) is a water-based frozen snack. 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.

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 have a consistency similar to that of a slushie.
