During the summer, it seems like there are lots of movies on that you don’t get to see during the rest of the year. There are shark movie marathons, endless repeats of all the Rocky movies and a plethora of old samurai movies that make you want to grab a sword and start swinging. These movies may not always be cinematic masterpieces, but they are a lot of fun to watch – and I find that they can be surprisingly inspiring. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that these Samuraice Pop Molds were inspired by a ninja movie marathon, since they look (almost) like the real thing!
Unlike real swords, these ice pops are not sharp enough to do any damage. They are, however, sold in sets of two so that you can do a little dueling with a friend – or reenact one of those movie scenes – before eating your pop, which makes them a lot more exciting than your average popsicle. The “swords” measure 8 inches long x 2.25 inches wide, with handles made from silicone and sword forms made from plastic. Each comes with a stand that will keep it upright in the freezer so that it has the best possible shape when frozen.
