Do I have some cute popsicle news for you! New to the ice pop world this year are some sweet new Tovolo popsicle molds. Such as…
Tovolo Bug Pop Molds: These new Tovolo are the first new molds to come along in a long while and they’re so cute too. The set features 3 unique designs (2 each) of a Ladybug, Caterpillar and Beetle with extra thick BPA-free sleeves to help keep popsicles cold longer once outside of the freezer.
UPDATE – JUNE 2012:
In case you don’t read the comments, I’d like to point out that reader Amie says the following of the bug pop molds…
“They are terrible. I too usually love Tovolo molds, but these are awkward to use for adults, never mind kids. The handles are disproportionately skinny given the large pop size. My two and a half year old can’t even hold them up straight because they are so top heavy.”
Other comments on the Amazon review page say much the same, so if you’ve got younger kids you may want to rethink these molds and go with another choice from my ultimate ice pop mold post. It’s really not Tovolo’s best year for ice pop molds.
The adorable stem-like handle offers a better grip for little hands and a drip guard. There’s also a really fun leaf-shaped base that doubles as ice pop serveware.
But that’s not all. Tovolo has another fun new set on the market this year that’s utterly unique.
UPDATE – June 2012: DO NOT BUY the twin pop molds – read my review.
The second new set is unlike any other set I’ve seen, in that these are like store-bought double pops. These BPA-free ice pop molds come in a classic double sided shape for modern fun with unique contoured sleeves that allow you to make two popsicles from one mold. The molds feature drip catcher and the base keeps pop molds secure from tips and spills in the freezer.
I love this idea – it’s great for younger kids who can’t eat a whole pop. It’s also the perfect way to keep one side icy cold as you eat the other.
