The other day, our staff got to talking about Popsicle molds. And by talking, I mean complaining! Why are so many of them so terrible? They leak! They take up so much room in the freezer! They don't release the frozen treat when its time to eat one! There were very few Popsicle molds that our editors said were decent. And then Faith chimed in about these stackable molds from Lekue.
"These Popsicle molds are so ingenious — I don't know why all Popsicle molds aren't made this way!" she says.
Here's what she loves about them.
"They are cute and colorful and easy to fill up (no delicate balancing of a mold inside a cup or a frame), Faith says, "But the real selling point is that they lie flat in the freezer. I can make just one or two and tuck them inside the ice drawer of my drawer-style freezer and they take up no room at all — unlike bigger, bulkier sets that need a frame to hold them upright." No rearranging your stash of frozen meat every time you want to make cool treats for the family!
She also points out that the lay-flat design and the pop-on lid means zero leakage and spillage. And that the finished popsicles come neatly out of their colorful molds without having to melt any of it under the faucet. (And who hasn't melted half of the pop just to get it out?)
"They've been a huge hit for my toddler and make healthy, easy treats like yogurt-strawberry pops so easy," she adds.
