    This looks like it would be awesome down on the dock during the summer(now!), but I've never had one before. Has anyone seen this? Bought one? If you have, what do you think of it?

    I think $49.95 is kinda high for the ability to make ittybitty 2-1/4"x3-1/2" 2oz ice pops .

    IIWM I'd just use the little waxed paper cups we used when I was a kid.
    They sell them for cup dispensers. Pretty cheap for a box of 100, I think.

    Pour in your fruit juice or whatever mixture, add a wooden popsicle stick and freeze.
    Peel off the cup when it's frozen solid & enjoy : 9

    Or check the $1 Store for larger waxed paper cups.

    Quote:Agreed on the bold part. The nice thing was that it was a freezer you could pretty much take anywhere. Freeze the whole thing overnight and take it down to the dock to make whatever you want. It freezes your pops in under 15 minutes, it said. Since the dock is pretty far from the house and a bit of a hike down the hill, most popsicles would melt on the way down... Not that we need popsicles... Of course, wouldn't the freezer gigamabob thaw on the way down? Hm...

    Get a small cooler to tote your homemade icepops.
    They're pretty cheap and with a gel pack will keep things frozen for a long time.

    "Need" popsicles?
    Noone needs them, but they sure taste good on a hot day [​IMG]

    My favorite is frozen chocolate milk - you can even get lowfat or make your own.
    Then you justify it as adding calcium to your diet [​IMG]
