We all scream for ice cream, but rich creamy goodness isn’t the only fun frozen treat in town. Whether your little pints are clamoring for a scoop, pining for a popsicle, or just hankering for a giant bag of frozen popcorn, we’ve rounded up some of the coolest cool treats for kids in LA, no matter what they are craving.

Artisinal Ice Pops

Hand-crafted ice pops are popping up all over town. These are not your run-of-the-mill Big Sticks and Bomb Pops, but rather fun flavors, like Watermelon, Pink Lemonade or Horchata made with fresh ingredients. While there remains to be a brick and mortar storefront for most of these pops, many can be found at events around town, like Teebsie at the Melrose Place and Mar Vista Farmers Markets, Freezer Monkey at the Calabasas Farmers Market, and Paloma’s Paletas at the new Smorgasburg LA.
