Sweet Daiso Find – Popsicle Freezers

So I took TheFry to get a vaccination the other day and he was so upset afterwards that I would do just about anything to cheer him up.  That’s when I decided to take him to Daiso.


Daiso is like a mini household-goods store, like if you put Bed Bath & Beyond in a Seven-Eleven.  Anyhow, TheFry was excited to go, and I bought him a little set of six cars for 2,000 won (roughly $2).  He couldn’t have been happier.


And neither could I, really, because I found these supercool popsicle freezer containers – sets of 4 for 1,000 won each.  I bought two sets and immediately put them to use.



They’re dirty, but you get the point.


The great thing about popsicle freezers is that you can make an iced summer treat out of just about anything.  Plus, you can wash the containers so you won’t be making a lot of waste throwing away popsicles and paper cups or the plastic wrappers from packaged ice-pops.


This week I’ve made ice-pops almost every day from 100% grape or apple juice.  In fact, I made some watermelon lemonade and froze that, too.  I must say that watermelon lemonade ice pops are really, really yummy!


What makes popsicle freezer containers worthy of a blog post?  Probably because they keep me from having to march all the way to the grocery store whenever I feel like eating an ice cream.  But mostly, I have a very vivid memory of the time when we first bought this particular kind of popsicle freezer containers.  I don’t remember how old I was, but I remember my mom being excited about the little straws on the side that you can use to drink the juice.  I must have been pretty young because I remember thinking it was an A M A Z I N G idea to put straws on popsicle containers.


Anyhow, I hope you can go out and buy some of these if you’d like – you won’t regret it!  My next experiment…vanilla latte popsicles. *^_^*
