Gimme, Gimme!: The Quick Pop Maker By Zoku
Let your kids' imagination – and appetite! – soar as you customize your own frozen Popsicle style treats in just seven minutes
It's getting hot outside – and when the temps rise, the tastiest way to cool off is with a Popsicle or some ice cream. But you don't have to hit the store to buy a box when you've got The Quick Pop Maker at home! This is the very first product from Zoku, a company providing products for the home.
This easy-to-use pop maker is great for any family that loves a delicious frozen treat – especially one where you've picked the ingredients, so you know what you're getting every time.
You can use juice, yogurt, fruit, pudding and ice cream to create your very own flavorful pop. Don't use artificial sweeteners or diet pop in the maker.
To use the pop maker, you follow these simple steps:
- Put the pop maker in the freezer for 24 hours. Store it upright.
- Take it out of the freezer and insert the pop sticks into the three mold areas. If you're using fruit, place the fruit in the molds before inserting the sticks.
- Pour the juice, cream or pudding of your choice into each mold and wait. It will take seven to nine minutes for the pops to freeze. If you're adding more than one layer, don't do this all at once! Wait until each layer of juice freezes before adding another. No need to stick the pop maker in the freezer for this process – you simply leave it on the counter.
- Once the allotted time has past, turn the orange "super tool" clockwise into your delicious ice pops till they're released.
Add the drip cup (smart addition) and start eating!
It's priced at $49.95 – an investment that'll eventually pay for itself, if you skip buying box after box of Popsicles or ice cream.
Out just in time for summer, your kids will love creating funky flavor combinations – and you'll love knowing exactly what they're eating!
