If you love popsicles then you have got to get you a Zoku. Zoku is made up of a team of creative individuals who make and design products that will make our daily lives easier and better. Their first product put into production is The Quick Pop Maker.
When I received The Quick Pop Maker I was so happy and couldn’t wait to use it. It comes in a wide range of colors including white, red, orange, green and blue. I have seen these in stores everywhere but have not had the chance to try one. I was really curious to see how it made popsicles in as little as 7 minutes, and if it really did as good as it says. In the box, it comes with the maker, 6 durable and reusable plastic pop sticks, 6 drip guards, and a special tool that helps to release the frozen popsicles. You can only make 3 popsicles at a time, and it says you can make up to 9 pops before refreezing the unit again.
The Maker is filled with what sounds like water, so it has to be placed in the freezer for at least 24 hours before you can start making your popsicles. I was a little sad but we waited. For my first set of popsicles I tried out making those Sprite and Gummy Bear popsicles. I didn’t have Gummy Bears so we used Gummy Worms. I put the gummy worms in first, then the Sprite, then the stick. I later found out (after reading the instructions. Always read the instructions first J ) that you need to stick the stick in first THEN put all the goodies in there. Once I filled them, I placed them back in the freezer ( I didn’t see anywhere that said if you did or did not, so I did just to be safe) and timed it for 7 minutes. My fridge is older so it actually took around 9 minutes but sure enough, out came really cool popsicles. Next I made a Strawberry Banana Yogurt Popsicle. Head on over here and read my recipe for it.
The Quick Pop Maker can make those really cool striped pops, yogurt pops, flavored core pops, any type of popsicle your imagination can create. This is really nice to have in the house for the girls to enjoy a healthy popsicle after dinner. It also makes it fun for me to get my fruits in daily. I highly suggest this as a staple in anyone’s freezers. If you would like to purchase one, you can visit the Zoku Shop here. They are only $49.95.
