Thank you to Zoku whom sent over a few products for us to test and share with our family, friends and readers during #MPMHGG.
I have always had a little obsession with kitchen appliances and gadgets. I can’t help it, I just love them! Nothing makes me happier than to get my hands on something new to try and if it can make my time in the kitchen a bit faster and easier, it’s even better. I recently got a chance to try the Triple Quick Pop Maker, Quick Pops Recipe Book and Storage Case by Zoku and I was super excited. Ice pops are a favorite snack in my house and I loved the idea of making them myself and knowing exactly what is going into them, so my mind was instantly in motion, with ideas and flavor combos. I couldn’t wait for them to arrive!
When the package was delivered, I will admit that I tore into it with the joy of a child opening a gift, I couldn’t get that box open fast enough. When I got these goodies out of the box, the first thing that caught my eye were the colors. The Triple Quick Pop Maker is bright, vivid and looks sleek and modern. There are no cords because you don’t need any electricity to make your ice pops. The best part is that it’s so easy to use. I put the base of the unit in the freezer and since it needs at least 8 hours to freeze before it can be used, I decided I would make my pops the next day and surprise my family with them.
That night I sat down and read through the Quick Pops Recipe Book. The book has over 40 different recipes so that you never run out of flavors to try or get bored with one flavor. The photos in the book are beautiful and the recipes are creative and look delicious. There are also techniques, tips and decorating ideas to get your creative juices flowing. I would definitely recommend this book to go along with the Triple Quick Pop Maker. Everyone in the family will have at least a few must try recipes and they may even inspire you to create your own pop recipes. After looking through the Quick Pops Recipe Book, I chose the flavors I was going to make and made a mental note of a few recipes that I wanted to keep in mind for next time.
The next day I was back at the freezer ready to make some ice pops to surprise my family with. I took the unit out of the freezer, inserted the pop sticks into the molds and added different flavors of chilled juice to them. The Zoku Triple Quick Pop Maker freezes the pops in just 7 to 9 minutes. I made sure to keep all my ingredients ready to be used so that I could make the pops quickly. The Quick Pop Maker will make up to 9 pops before you need to freeze it again and I wanted to make as many as I could. The pops froze quickly, and it was easy to make different flavors and even striped pops. They came out great and now the Zoku Triple Quick Pop Maker has a permanent home in our freezer so that we can make ice pops at a moment’s notice.
Since the ice pops were a surprise, I was really glad to have the Storage Case. The base of the Storage Case is bright red and the cover is clear. You can store up to 6 pops in the airtight case, so I made 7 pops. I had to sample the first one as soon as it was ready, I just couldn’t wait till after dinner that night. The other 6 pops went into the Storage Case and then into the freezer. I was a little worried about them getting that freezer burned taste that can instantly ruin a frozen treat but I was impressed. After dinner, I took the Storage Case out of the freezer, removed the cover and sat the base with the pops on the kitchen table. My homemade ice pops looked great and tasted even better. The Storage Case really protected our ice pops and they tasted as fresh and delicious as they did when I first made them.
All in all, I have to say I was very happy with and impressed by the Triple Quick Pop Maker, Quick Pops Recipe Book and Storage Case by Zoku. We will definitely be using all of them regularly in my home. They are fun and easy to use and they are affordable as well. It is also a great feeling to know exactly what goes into the snacks that you eat and give your children to eat and Zoku makes that possible in a way that is fast, fun and simple to use.
