Some of my favorite memories of elementary school involve going to the park after getting picked up, finding an ice cream truck and buying red, white and blue rocket-shaped popsicles. The colors sold me on those pops, but the rocket ships shape was what made them memorable. Tovolo makes popsicle molds in all kinds of shapes – including that classic rocket ship shape, so you can relive childhood popsicle memories at home. The Rocket Pop Molds are made of plastic, like many standard popsicle molds. Popsicles each stand in their own holder on the included base, a base that keeps them upright in the freezer and allows you to remove the popsicles one at a time. It’s a nice feature of you’ve ever wrestled with a multi-pop tray before. The handles and sturdy and have drip guards around the base to keep your hands from getting sticky.
The only problem with this product is that I haven’t gotten the hang of making the red, white a blue pops with it, yet. The sticks are long and sturdy, so it’s hard to freeze the popsicle in layers and then insert the stick. A minor detail and not really much of a “problem” with the product as much as it is a problem with my popsicle-making skills. I’ll stick with solid rocket pops for now and just enjoy the shape!
