Nothing says summer like cold, refreshing popsicles! And nothing says the very best homemade popsicles like the Zoku Quick Pops Maker. Using some fancy technology for a fast and even freeze, the Zoku Quick Pop Maker allows you to create your very own delicious pops at home in a matter of minutes.
About the Zoku Quick Pops Maker
The patented Zoku Quick Pop Maker freezes ice pops in as little as seven minutes right on your countertop without electricity. Quickly make striped pops, yogurt pops or (for the first time ever at home) flavored core pops. To enjoy Quick Pops at a moment’s notice, simply store the compact base in your freezer. The kit includes six durable, reusable plastic pop sticks that have unique ridged designs that allow pops to adhere securely, with special drip guards for tidy eating. A specially designed Super Tool helps to quickly release the frozen treats from their molds. The unit can make up to 9 pops before refreezing the unit again. Includes 1 Quick Pop Maker, 6 sticks, 6 drip guards, and 1 Super Tool.

The beauty of the Quick Pop Maker is that you create the pop from start to finish. Concern about allergies? Trying to restrict calories? Avoiding high fructose corn syrup? Eating organic? Make the recipe that best suits you and your family’s tastes and in less than ten minutes you have three pops to enjoy! To prepare to make Quick Pops, put the Zoku in the freezer for a day or two before you plan to make a batch. Before we made Pops for the first time we browsed the super tasty Zoku Quick Pops book that includes over 40 recipes designed specifically for the Zoku to find a couple we wanted to try. The recipes are easy to follow and quite tasty, so I definitely recommend the book. It also has some valuable tips and tricks on creating your Pops. So far we’ve made plain Vanilla, Lemonade with Strawberries and Cookies and Cream Pops – and they were all delicious. The Zoku Blog also has lots of yummy recipes to check out, too.
One of the best things about the Zoku is that your kids can easily participate in making the Pops. Both my son and daughter have helped to mix ingredients, pour and they love watching the Pops freeze. (A little like watching paint dry, I admit, but it doesn’t take nearly as long!) And, of course, they’ve really eating the Pops!
If you plan to invest in a Zoku, which I recommend, the set of Zoku Quick Pop Tools is a useful addition. The Tools are useful for making more fancy and complex Pops, but don’t be intimidated. We’ve used the fruit Stencils to make stars and hearts from strawberries, and the Fruit Want to place the fruit and Oreos (yum!) in the Pop Maker. The tools are very easy to use and, like the Maker, the instructions are very easy to follow.
To Buy or Not to Buy
To Buy… We LOVE the Quick Pop Maker. It is easy to use, makes delicious pops from the ingredients YOU want in less than ten minutes. It’s a great addition to a family kitchen and makes a fun activity for a dinner get together or play date.
Or Not to Buy… The only issue we’ve run into is that it makes 3 pops at a time so someone in our family of four always has to wait for the second batch.
Shop! The Zoku Quick Pop Maker is available for $49.99 and includes everything you need to make Pops, including the base, remover tool, six reusable pop sticks and six reusable drip guards. The Zoku Quick Pop Tools are $20 and the Zoku cookbook is $16.
