Many DIY rainbow popsicles are labor and time intensive between mixing each colored layer or waiting for layers to freeze before adding the next. While those are SO adorable, I like the idea of this quick fix recipe and they are are super cute on top of it! You can't tell me these ice pops don't make you smile big! 😉

Rainbow Popsicles Recipe

For this quick recipe, you only need Sprite or other clear lemon lime flavored soda,  Rainbow Berry Airheads Extremes Sour Candy & popsicle molds. I recently bought these Ozera popsicle molds that have a drip guard (oh yeah baby!)

These two ingredients make for a ridiculously amazing looking rainbow pop that tastes like childhood in every bite.

With a special little twist to the candy, you can make the perfect rainbow ice pops. I did some trial and error and this was definitely the best way to do it. Check it out!

Unlike other gummy candies, these Airheads don't harden up when frozen. They actually do the opposite and get a bit softer.

The MAGIC of these pops happen when all the sugary sour goodness come off of the candy and mix right into the soda.  Each bite is a sweet and sour surprise. Like the best of movie theater snacks in each nibble.
