Even though I'm still a big fan of these ice-pop makers, I could see how these twisty Orka pops could be a lot of fun for kids. At $14.99 with free Prime or Supersaver (minimum $25 order) shipping, they are a few dollars more expensive than the other ones, but after reading some of the reviews (and seeing the 4-1/2 out of 5 star rating over 113 customers), I'm impressed.
Reviewers lauded how easy it was to release the ice pop from the silicone molds, how convenient it was to have separate mold for each pop (I hate the ones where they are all part of one big piece) and how nice looking the pop was. Here's what one purchaser said:
I had bought some cheaper ice pop molds and it drove me crazy trying to remove the popsicle - warm water, banging them on the counter, having the stick come out without the pop. My two year old would lose interest by the time I got the thing out, half melted and dripping. I thought I'd give these a try, even though I was bit skeptical about the claims of how easy they were to remove. But low and behold, I grabbed that little tab and the silicon peeled right off, leaving a perfectly frozen, molded ice pop - as pretty as one I'd buy at the store. Great product.We don't have kids, but these ice pop molds are great for creating low-calorie treats in the summer. You control the ingredients, so you can make a juice or yogurt pop without any sugar, or for a Shabbat dessert, you can use coconut milk and fruit for a pareve pop. Lots of possibilities.
Get this 4-piece Orka Ice Pop set for $14.99 before Amazon pulls another one of their infamous price hikes again.
