Sugar Pops
Don’t be fooled by the name, eating these seasonal treats—in flavors like grape, kiwi, and watermelon—is more like grabbing a chilled piece of fresh fruit than eating a sticky-sweet ’sicle. $2.50. Sugar Bakeshop, 59 1/2 Cannon St. (843) 579-2891,

Shake It Up
Head to Sesame at Citadel Mall to choose from their milkshake specials, including peanut butter-chocolate, cran-raspberry sherbet, and more. $5. Sesame, 2070 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. (843) 766-7770, 

Get the Scoop
Chef Eva Keilty crumbles home-baked cakes, cookies, and pies into extra-rich ice creams to create flavors like cranberry-chocolate chip and mango-cayenne chili sorbet. $6 pint. Ted’s Butcherblock, 334 East Bay St. (843) 577-0094,

Dirty Pie on a Stick
Popsicle meets pie in this slice of key lime heaven that’s frozen and covered in dark chocolate. $5. Charleston Cookie Co., 1750 Signal Point Rd. (843) 762-4185,

Chocolate Dreamsicle
For a grown-up indulgence, pastry chef Claire Chapman combined Grand Marnier-infused chocolate pâté on a white chocolate rice crispy with blood-orange coulis and salted caramel. On the side: a mini orange cream soda float. $10. Peninsula Grill, 112 N. Market St. (843) 723-0700,
