Lots of great recipes with easy to follow instructions and lots of color photos too!
Judy Kepler
There are some very tasty flavor combinations in here and I like that it also provided creative ideas for molds to use.

A gift for our grandkids, who love their treats that are healthy, so we make them with yogurt and fruit.

Format: Paperback
I agreed with the reviewer who said the long over-the-top reviews looked like a publicist wrote them. However, I bought the book anyway. It truly is as good as I hoped it would be. So far I have made Fresh Fruit bubbly pops, Grape Pops, and Coconut pops. They all turned out as good as the pictures looked in the book. My only complaint is that the recipes make a LOT of "batter". So I have cut them in half so that I have just the right amount to fill my 6 large Tovolo pops (also from Amazon). If you were using the Tupperware pops you would have WAY too much batter. I haven't tried any of the really exotic cocktail pops, just the summery fruity ones. The fruity ones taste a lot fresher than the fruity type pops I bought at the supermarket. I highly recommend this book.

Look in your cupboards - do you have ginger juice, pomegranate seeds, fresh apple cider, diced lychee, tangerine juice or Thai coffee powder? If so, then have no fear these recipes are going to delight and amaze you with all kinds of amazing flavor sensations. If your cupboards are more like mine filled with North American "staples" then it's going to take a trip to a grocery store, or a specialty Asian foods store to get stared on some of these pops.
Don't get me wrong, I love this book and I have enjoyed every pop I have made so far, but in the wallet department, some of these recipes are a stretch! Buying specialty ingredients that can go bad also means you will have to be dedicated to finding other uses for them if they are going to spoil, or make another round or two of that same pop. Not every recipe will send you to the store, there are many in the book that will help you use up what's around the house - but like a specialty foods cookbook, this one has many ideas that require unexpected delights.
The author of this book is right it really is for kidults - those adults with nostalgia for their past and a few dollars to invest in their vision. I recommend this book to those of you who are serious about ice pop making and want explore the exotic recipes, and those of you who are just looking for quick ideas for kid summer treats I think should stick to the millions of internet recipes available.

I actually purchased this book looking for some recipes for fruit pops for summer--and those we've tried have been good. But the book had a lot of other choices as well, the chapter titles are: Fruit Juice Pops, Healthy Energy Pops, Soda Fountain Pops, Cream & Pudding Pops, Coffee & Tea Pops, and Cocktail pops. So it has a nice selection of things to try beyond the basic fruit juice pop.

So far, we've tried the Root Beer float pops, the Carmel latte pops, and the Thai Iced Coffee Pops. All were yummy and not difficult to make. There are lots of pictures which I always helpful for a recipe book. The book also has a section on how to make your own Popsicle molds, which I haven't tried yet, but it looks like you can be creative with those if you're more craftsy.

The molds I use are also sold by Amazon. They're smaller than standard pops, but that's what I like about them. They don't melt before you can finish them. And since they're silicon, they're easy to unmold. Orka Ice Pop Molds, White Base

You won't find any of your favorite pops here. It's many recipes that are labor and ingredient intensive and not highly appealing either. I guess this is perfect for you if you like making complicated things and have an experimental palate. This is a big no for kids.

84 of 103 people found the following review helpful By LB on February 1, 2011
Format: Paperback
So to give a polite summary of what happened below, I'll keep it simple: The author is from SoCal. The reviews that all happpppened to show up in a ridiculously short span of time for a total NICHE item (cmon, a popsicle book just isn't going to be a top seller) also happened to have a few things in common:

*Nearly all were the only review of the people.
*None were Amazon Verified Purchases. (Mine wasn't, either--I checked it out at the library--but I don't write like I'm marketing it either.)
*Nearly all openly list their location as Southern Cali; one who defended the author fiercely in response to criticism MET the author at a SF area "Faire."
*They all use direct marketing quotes FROM the book, they quote chapter summaries, and they ALL are written exactly like persuasive English 101 essays for college courses.

My guess? Her students did it. My hope? They love her. My fear? She asked them to. My 99% certainty? They haven't made a dern THING in this book...

So my own assessment is this: Some of it is ridiculously basic and therefore fine--pomegranate apple, for instance... a couple kinds of juice tossed in Tovolo molds and voila... wow, not exactly mind-blowing.

MOST that are "original" or "creative" are GROSS. Green tea ones were especially wretched. Some made us want to hurl, and we use top notch ingredients. They just don't work.

The reason we even checked it out was we won an also-overhyped product, this frou frou pop mold maker that "ooh aah" you freeze then shove on the counter. It's the Zoku.
