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.
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
*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.Read more ›

Okay, I should have paid more attention to reviews before buying this! It was a gift for my daughter along with some pop molds, but sadly, doubt we will use this much if at... Read morePublished 10 months ago by Reviews on Amazon
