Eversince I found these $2 popsicles /icy poles moulds in Kmart, I have gone on popsicles rampage making hundreds popsicles since the beginning of summer :D
A dozen of popsicles didn't last long in the freezer, especially during those hot summer days.
Perth summer can be very unforgiving.
Before this $2 Kmart popsicle moulds, I was eyeing Zoku Popmaker, but the price tag! Wow...$55 per set and it makes 3 popsicles!!!
Yes... Zoku makes pop in 10 minutes, but 3? I could foresee someone (ie my Missy No 1 popsicle eater) will finish all 3 in 10 minutes too, left nothing for .... me :o
It takes longer time to be able to enjoy popsicles with my $2 Kmart moulds, but it teaches us ('us' refers to the Missy the popsicle eater ;P ) few things - good things comes to those who wait, need not burn a hole in our wallet to get the same end results... and finally, when I am done using my $2 Kmart popsicles mould... I can either give it away, throw it away without guilt :D
I have since made batches and batches of popsicles... from yoghurt (Yoplait is the best) to fruit juices (when mom is feeling uninspired and teeny weeny bit lazy...)
