- “Pawpsicles! Get your pawpsicles!”
- ―Nick Wilde
Pawpsicles are small, frozen treats shaped roughly like paws. They are about the size of a dog's paw, and are planted on popsicle sticks and frozen before being ready to sell. One Jumbo-pop makes over 90 pawpsicles, as seen in the film.
Role in the Film
After seeing Finnick for a second time in Sahara Square, Judy Hopps witnesses him and Nick melting the Jumbo-pop she helped them get earlier and collecting its juices, prompting her to follow them around Zootopia to see what they are up to.
In Tundratown, Nick and Finnick pour the juices into molds made by Finnick's feet stepping in the snow and place a popsicle stick in each one.
Later, while looking at Emmitt Otterton's case file, Judy sees a picture of him with a pawpsicle, forcing her to question Nick about the otter's disappearance.
At the end of the film, Nick is seen eating a pawpsicle, implying that they are still regularly being made, and he gets it stuck to his face when Judy slams the brakes in their car.
Role in Literature
At the end of the comic, Judy Hopps and a badly scratched Nick Wilde return the squirrel baby to her mother, along with a pawpsicle. The squirrel baby is seen happily gazing at it as Judy and Nick take their leave.
Role in Media
If out of energy, the player can buy a pawpsicle and receive 25 energy.
In the Snow Forts/Savanna Central, a cart of pawpsicles could be seen as a decoration. Later in the party, players could obtain a pin shaped like a pawpsicle.
