Sugar-free popsicles you can buy at the grocery store. Popsicles (or if you are in the UK “lollies”). They are things our kids ask us for all Summer long. But how about if you want to fulfill their requests without having to deal with the inevitable sugar rush and low afterward? Enter added sugar-free popsicles. In this post, I will be presenting you with the best added sugar-free popsicles out there. All the below popsicles contain 0g of added sugar but some of them still contain some total sugar from the fruit (generally the higher quality the popsicle, the higher the total sugar content due to naturally occurring sugar from the fruit).
I have put this list together in descending order of total sugar content.
If your priority is 0g of both added and total sugars, then read right to the end to find out about three 0g of total and added sugar popsicles.
If you are okay with some total sugar but want a super-natural popsicle, then the first few entries on this list will likely be for you (my personal pick would be Deebees – no sweeteners and organic). So, without further ado – let’s dig in.
What are some sugar-free popsicles you can buy at the grocery store?
As a general rule, the following brands have an added sugar-free popsicle variety –
- Good Pops;
- Signature Select; and
- Budget Saver.
Some of these popsicles are sweetened with sweeteners and some just rely on the sweetness of fruit juice.

1. No Sugar Added Pops By Chloe’s – 8g-12g of Total Sugar
*Sweetened with monk fruit*
First up on this list are Chloe’s No Sugar Added Pops. If you are trying to avoid added sugar, just be careful to avoid the regular Chloe’s pops as these are sweetened with cane sugar. You need to keep your eye out for the No Added Sugar variety, which comes in strawberry and grape flavors.
You can find out more about the no added sugar variety on Chloe’s website here.
Chloe’s No Sugar Added pops are, as the name suggests, added sugar-free and are instead sweetened with monk fruit. They still contain sugar fruit, for example, the strawberry flavor contains 8g of total sugar per popsicle and the grape variety contains 12g of total sugar per popsicle.
If you are also watching your total sugar intake opt for the strawberry flavor. On a side note, grapes always tend to be one of the highest-sugar fruit juices – you can read more about it here – What Juice Has The Least Sugar and Which Has the Most?
2. Goodpop Sugar-Free Pops – 5g-6g of Total Sugar
The next added sugar free popsicle on this list comes from Goodpop. What I love about the added sugar free Goodpops is that there are no sweeteners. Yes, that is right – no sweeteners. Instead, they just rely on the sweetness of the fruit. Love.
There are two varieties of added sugar free Goodpops. The first are their freezer pops which contain 6g of total sugar per pop. You can find Goodpop’s freezer pops on Amazon here.
The other added sugar-free pops from Goodpops are their junior pops on sticks, which you can treat yourself to on Amazon here. The junior pops on sticks contain a touch less total sugar at 5g of sugar per popsicle.
Just note that not all Goodpops popsicles are added sugar free – their creamy pops like the orange and cream do contain added sugar.
3. Deebees Super Fruit Freezie Pops – 5g of Total Sugar
The other popsicle brand on this list that does not contain any sweeteners is Deebees. Yes, Deebees just rely on the natural sweetness of the fruit juice. I also adore the fact that Deebees popsicles are organic.
These popsicles contain 0g of added sugar, of course, and only 5g of total sugar per Deebees Super Fruit freezie pop. There are three varieties that you can choose from, all of which are available on Amazon –
- Classic Deebees Pops (Find it on Amazon here)
- Tropical Deebees Pops – (Find it on Amazon here)
- Variety pack of Deebees pops – (Find it on Amazon here)
If you are okay with a small amount of naturally occurring sugar and your main priority is a natural popsicle, you can’t really beat Deebees pops (in my opinion).
4. Outshine No Sugar Added Pops – <1g of Total Sugar
*Sweetened with sorbitol, maltodextrin, polydextrose, sucralose, and acesulfame potassium*
I am sure you have seen Outshine popsicles in the freezer aisle at the grocery stores before. Now most Outshine popsicles do contain added sugar, but they do carry two boxes of No Added Sugar Pops.
The first boxed sugar-free popsicles from Outshine consist of Strawberry, Raspberry, and Tangerine. The other sugar-free variety pack consists of Black Cherry, Mixed Berry, and Strawberry Kiwi. I have tried both and I always end up picking the strawberry, raspberry, and tangerine combo (it is my children’s preference).
All Outshine’s added sugar free flavors are sweetened with a few sweeteners. These include sorbitol, maltodextrin, polydextrose, sucralose, and acesulfame potassium to be precise.
You can check them out for yourself here.
Weirdly a serving size of Outshine Added Sugar Free popsicle is defined as three pops. A serving of the strawberry, raspberry, and tangerine variety contains 1g of total sugar and a serving of the other variety box contains 2g of total sugar. Regardless this equates to <1g of total sugar per popsicle.
5. Popsicle Sugar-Free Ice Pops – 0g of Total Sugar
*Sweetened with maltodextrin, aspartame and acesulfame potassium*
The next entry on this list comes from the popsicle brand with the best name on this list – Popsicle. Yes, that’s right, added sugar free popsicles from Popsicle. Genius.
A box of Popsicle’s sugar-free popsicles consists of orange, cherry, and grape-flavored popsicles. These sugar-free popsicles are sweetened with maltodextrin, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium. A serving size is again defined as three pops, but it is irrelevant because there is still 0g of total sugar in a three-popsicle serving.
If you are interested in trying these sugar-free popsicles you can from Target here.
6. Signature Select Sugar-Free Pops – 0g of Total Sugar
*Sweetened with sorbitol, acesulfame potassium, polydextrose, maltodextrin and sucralose*
Another 0g of total sugar popsicle comes from Signature Select. Signature Select is one of Albertsons own brands. So, if you are a popsicle-loving, sugar-hating Albertsons shopper rejoice.
These sugar-free pops are again sweetened with a variety of sweeteners, namely sorbitol, acesulfame potassium, polydextrose, maltodextrin, and sucralose.
You can find these sugar-free popsicles in orange, cherry, and grape flavors. They can be found on the Albertsons website here.
7. Budget Saver Sugar-Free Twin Pops – 0g of Total Sugar
*Sweetened with sorbitol, maltodextrin, and aspartame
The final entry on this list comes from Budget Saver. These popsicles are perfect if you are watching your sugar intake and watching your bank balance.
They are sweetened with sorbitol, maltodextrin, and aspartame and contain 0g of total sugar per popsicle. Cheap and cheerful.
You can check them out for yourself here.
You may have noticed so far that it is the cheaper added sugar free popsicle brands that tend to contain 0g of total sugar too. Why is this? Well, if a popsicle doesn’t contain real fruit juice, then it also won’t contain total sugar content. Whereas popsicles that are made from actual fruit will contain naturally occurring sugar from the fruit.

Sugar-Free Popsicles You Can Buy At The Grocery Store! – The Final Bite
Sugar-free popsicles you can buy at the grocery store. What have we learned from the above?

There are plenty of sugar-free popsicles available from grocery stores. Just bear in mind that the higher the quality of popsicle the more likely it will use better ingredients like fruit pulps.
