Popsicles have always been a popular summer treat, but these peculiar ice pop flavors put an unexpected twist on the classic frozen dessert. Departing from standard fruity flavors, these ice pops use unorthodox ingredients to create boozy frozen treats and unexpectedly savory popsicles.

Perhaps the most fun way to put an adult twist on popsicles is to infuse them with a bit of alcohol. With recipes featuring everything from spiced rum, gin, vodka and even stout, there are a number of different options for whipping up your own boozy frozen creations. There are even champagne flavored popsicles that are perfect for any sophisticated celebration.

While alcohol may not be the strangest addition to popsicles, there are many other ice pop flavors that put a bizarre spin on the classic childhood treat. Inspired by the popular Italian dish, there a number of spaghetti-themed ice pops that offer an unusually savory tomato sauce flavor. If frozen pasta pops are not for you, other strange varieties include sweet mung bean popsicles and creamy avocado-infused pops.
