Asda Ice Lolly Maker
Advantages: Makes yummy lollies, great price, easy to use, easy to clean
I always remember making lollies as a child and when I saw this set in my local Asda store for £1 I thought it was a great price and was sure my daughter would love to make lollies with me.
The lolly moulds weren't packaged in any way and simply had a very small black cardboard tag attached with a plastic tie with the name of the product on the front and a barcode so they could charge you for it on the back.
The lolly moulds are a set of 8 which are in 2 rows of 4 moulds so form an overall rectangular shape. The moulds are bright blue in colour to which my daughter had a little moan of why had I not bought her a pink one but them that's because she likes everything to be pink.
Asda released a new range of juices in the summer, Lemon sherbet, pear drops and fruit salad so my daughter decided as I had not got her pink lolly moulds we would use the pear drops juice which is pink so she could have pink lollies. We made the juice up as directed as usually I weaken my daughters juices but as lollies I thought they would need more flavour and poured the juice into the moulds, you need to leave a small gap at the top so that when you place the lid on which has a stick on the underneath to hold onto the lolly once frozen it doesn't push the juice out of the moulds.
Once you have filled the moulds and the tops are in place (they sit on top rather than closing) you simply pop the moulds into the freezer and wait for your lollies to set. Generally I make the lollies up on a night when they are running out so that they are fully set the next day ready for eating although I find they usually take a couple of hours to set.
To get the lollies out simply run the mould under the hot tap obviously trying to mainly get the lolly mould from which you are trying to remove the lolly and then tug gently and the lolly will come out easily, I remember this trick from when my Mam used to make them.
The lollies are easy to hold as there is a stick on the top for you to hold them by, the lollies melt at just the same rate as any shop bought lollies. The mould is very easy to wash out and just gets washed with my other dishes although I don't dry it but just let it dry standing upside down on my draining board.
My daughter loves the lolly moulds because she can choose what flavour lollies to have although she got bored of being involved in the making of them. The best flavour in my opinion is to make up a batch of angle delight and use that instead of juice - yummy.
