I’m not completely sure how this happened but our house is now the designated house to go to for popsicles, otter pops, cookies and candy.
OK, OK, I know why.
And now it already surprisingly feels like summer here in Seattle (beautiful, sunny and like mid 70’s to the low 80’s!). What’s up Seattle? Not that I’m complaining or anything but I still don’t understand you completely so I hope you’re not teasing us with this gorgeous weather. Seriously, today was 80 degrees and beautiful. So what did I do? I whipped out our new Zoku Quick Pop Maker.
If you only buy one thing this summer for your kids (or even yourself), buy this.
Do you worry about how much sugar or what ingredients are being used to make those popsicles that your kids devour in under 3 minutes? Well, with the Zoku Quick Pop Maker you make your own!! You can blend natural fruit juices, or your favorite punch or lemonade and make different flavor combinations all on your own. My girls are obsessed with the color pink so I made lemonade pops and then tried the dual-color pops and used lemonade and blueberry juice!
With my help, my oldest actually helped me pour the juice in. . it was cool for her to watch and then, after about 1 minute, she went to go do something else. We obviously cook, bake and spend a lot of time in the kitchen together. This is perfect for us and a lot of fun to make. The patented Zoku Quick Pop Maker freezes ice pops in about 6-7 minutes right on your countertop without electricity!! You don’t plug anything in. Before the first use, you must place the entire pop maker into your freezer for 24 hours. After that, you can go crazy! Quickly make striped juice pops or yogurt pops!
So you can enjoy quick pops whenever you want, simply store the compact base in your freezer. Just keep it there so you can whip it out whenever you have the urge to make pops! The kit includes six durable, reusable plastic pop sticks that have unique ridged designs that allow the pops to adhere securely, with special drip guards for tidy eating. A specially designed Super Tool (orange gripper thing featured in the first photo) helps to quickly release the frozen treats from their molds. This thing is seriously awesome. . because you wonder, how the hell are these things going to come out? The super tool screws on to the pop sticks and your quick pop comes out clean. No mess. The unit can make up to 9 pops before refreezing the unit again and I simply stored the quick pops in my freezer while I was making the other ones.
You can click here to see how to works. The box includes: 1 Quick Pop Maker, 6 sticks, 6 drip guards, and 1 Super Tool. And it’s BPA and phthalate free. I also love all of the bright colors it comes in. You’re sure to find one that you like!
The girls and I are totally looking forward to using this a lot more during the summer and getting creative with our flavors. . and I know the neighborhood kids are going to love this as well!
