Orka 4-Ice Pops

Orka 4-Ice Pops

Popsicles are even easier to make than ice cream because you don’t need an ice cream maker or any other special appliance to make them. What you do need, however is a mold to shape them with. The simplest way to make a popsicle is to use a small paper cup or yogurt container, fill it with juice (or whatever else you choose to use as a base for popsicles) and put a popsicle stick into it as it firms up in the freezer. If you’re going to make them on a regular basis, popsicle molds can make things a whole lot easier. Inexpensive molds are easy to find, but the Orka 4-Ice Pops have a few features that make them stand out from the rest of the pack.

The base of the pop is made of silicone, which just pops off of the frozen popsicle when you’re ready to eat. Most popsicle molds have hard plastic bodies that are difficult to remove, or require you to run them under hot water to loosen them before serving. Also, the pops have cup-shaped popsicle sticks that will catch drips. A small stand holds the popsicles upright while they freeze, too. Finally, the swirly shape of these popsicles is very appealing on its own. It’s easy to eat and reminiscent of some of the fancier popsicles you could buy from ice cream trucks as a kid, rather than typical the plain Jane homemade popsicle mold.

    I’ve been wondering – do you purchase and use all of the kitchen gadgets and cookbooks that you review on this site? It’s hard to tell from the reviews themselves.

    For example, when you say, “The base of the pop is made of silicone, which just pops off of the frozen popsicle when you’re ready to eat,” do you know this from experience? Or is this just what you’ve read elsewhere? Thanks.

    J – Thanks for the question! I know it from experience, working with silicone and different types of frozen foods/liquids, from ice to ice cream.

    I was trying to find out on Amazon but couldn’t, do you know where they are made? Trying to avoid the China stuff. Thanks!
