Zoku Quick Pop Maker - Make A Sweet Frozen Summer Treat!

The summer time is probably one of my least favorite times of year. While everyone cheers it, I react more like a vampire who recoils in horror over a ray of sun hitting it. But since I have no choice and summer is practically just around the corner, why not have more fun with it?

I had the chance to try out these Zoku Quick Pop Maker and I can't wait to share my experience with you.

About Zoku

I love their company's story. I also love that they have a test kitchen! Can I visit soon?? Anyways, it started out with them wondering how they could make popsicles faster? Well Zoku Quick Pop Maker was born! And in case you were wondering, Zoku is family in Japanese. This product as well as so many of their other products are perfect family activities.

About the Quick Pop Maker

I had a huge trial and error experience my first time around making popsicles. I made coffee pops. I felt inspired after I made a pot of coffee that I ended up not drinking. Instead of turning the coffee into just boring iced coffee, I put it into a pitcher to save for when I planned on making these popsicles!


So I purchased some very sweet cream and chocolate sauce. I poured quite a generous amount of both into the pitcher of coffee. I left my Zoku Quick Pop Maker in the freezer.

Overall, the process of making a popsicle is really easy. I found one popsicle didn't want to come out and I think it had something to do with the fact that some ice had gotten inside the popsicle maker. So tip # 1, make sure you don't allow water or other liquid inside of the popsicle maker before you are ready to make your popsicles.

I recommend using a funnel to get the liquid inside the pop maker, because I made an enormous mess by trying to only use the pitcher spout to aim right. Once I cleaned up my mess though, I was able to make a really good one coffee pop. One of the things I like best is that because you have left the Zoku Quick Pop Maker inside of the freezer, you can make quite a lot of pops within the seven minute period of time it takes to make the two.

These are definitely fun for kids and based on their website that lists a TON of recipes you can do so much with these. I plan on using this again (and making my own grown up Mojito-pops!). Find out more of their recipes by visiting this link.
