Asda Ice Lolly Maker
Advantages: Cheap, easy to use
During the summer I really fancied making some of my own ice lollies for me and my daughter to enjoy in the relatively hot weather. I went looking for an ice lolly maker and came across this one in Asda so snapped it up.
The ice lolly maker is available from Asda for only £1. It doesn't have anything in the way of packaging, just a small tag with the product name and barcode on it.
The lolly maker looks like you would expect with holes and a stick to put inside. It is a bright blue colour so it is easy to spot in your freezer when it is alongside all of the other contents. There are eight compartments meaning you can make a total of eight ice lollies at a time, these are two rows of four holes so it isn't long, wide or huge in the freezer. The holes are a nice size and they end up making a nice size ice lolly, around 5cm long and a couple of cm in diameter. The moulds also come with lids, these lids hold the stick to each ice lolly.
I normally make up what flavour I'd like the ice lollies to be in a jug first with orange, blackcurrant or summer fruits squash, for example, then simply use the jug to pour the liquid into each mould. The lids then go on the top and you pop the maker in the freezer. The lids are quite loose so it is a bit of a balancing act trying not to let the liquid escape before you make it to the freezer. I'm not sure exactly how long the ice lollies take to freeze, we usually go back to them the day after and have them then and they are definitely frozen.
When I first got the ice lolly maker I was a little confused as to how to get the ice lolly out of the mould. I got so frustrated I ended up snapping the end two moulds off even though the plastic is quite thick! I've learnt my lesson now and after a short while under a hot tap the lollies loosen and are easy to slide out of the mould. The handles are easy for both me and my daughter to hold without any problems.
The maker is easy to wash out and I normally wash it up with the rest of my normal washing up and leave it to dry, it's then ready to use again with whatever flavour you fancy!
I'd definitely recommend this ice lolly maker from Asda, at only £1 it is a great cheap way to make your own ice lollies at home without having to pay at least £1 for each individual ice lolly in a shop or from the ice cream van.
