Tips for the Perfect Frozen Pop
- There are so many molds available. Everything from traditional molds, quick freeze machines, or get creative and find some unique options in your kitchen. Try a shot or juice glass or go for mold of our choice back in the 70s, the “Dixie Cup,” any paper cup will do.
- Pick up Popsicle sticks at your local craftstore or specialty stores online.
- Dealing with bent pop sticks? Soak the sticks in water prior to inserting them into your frozen pop or straighten then while they’re freezing.
Storing pops in the mold is best, but if you need the mold pull the pop and store it in an unbleached natural wax paper bag.
Pops should be enjoyed within a week for the best taste.
