Norpro Silicone Ice Pop Molds, reviewed

Norpro Ice Pops
There are many fun and interesting popsicle molds out there that you can use to make homemade popsicles or fudgsicles at home. There aren’t too many like these Norpro Silicone Ice Pop Molds, however, and that is what originally attracted me to them. These silicone sleeves don’t require any popsicle sticks. Instead, you simply fill up the silicone tube with your popsicle mixture (or plain fruit juice) and freeze, then squeeze the tube from the bottom to push up the pop!

I always loved push pops as a kid and so I was looking forward to giving these molds a try after I picked up a package. Each of the sleeves comes with a cap that seals the popsicle securely, so no liquid seeps out while the pops freeze, even if you store them on their side in the freezer. The nonstick silicone made for a very clean release and I was easily able to squeeze my frozen pops out of the sleeves immediately after taking them out of the freezer. The only downside is that the set only comes with four molds, and these are so fun to eat and serve that I wouldn’t mind having more – but that is easily remedied with another set.

    I love these! You’re right- I’d definitely need two sets as 4 won’t cut it.

    Did you notice any smell or taste associated with the silicone? I’ve purchased silicone in the past and had to pitch it because it was so odorous.

    Did you find them locally or order them online? One of the Amazon reviews mentioned a weird flavor they imparted, did you notice it?

    Cybele – I bought them online, but I didn’t notice any weird flavors. I did wash them before I used them, so I don’t know if that would have made a difference.

    @Melissa S/Cybele.
    What brand of Silicone mold’s did you buy?its very important to make sure you are buying a product that has been manufactured correctly ie: a name brand such as Norpro, Silikomart etc because their manufacturing process guarantee’s you no odour or taste provided you wash the mold out the first time and if baking with it,add butter the first time you use it.
    @Nicole
    Yes washing them first usually removes any contaminants that would be there from after the production process.
    However if the smell or odour is still there I would suggest replacing it for a new one.
