For the Kid in Dad (or just for the kids)

Assorted Ice Pop Molds

We admit it, we were caught off guard. 

Remember a few weeks ago when there was that heat wave in May? We had put out our stock of various ice pop molds just to remind people we had them, really, but within a week they were mostly gone. So we immediately placed an order for more and of course it turned cold again. Which is fine because there was a delay in the delivery. But as the official start of summer looms, we're glad to report that ice pop molds are back in stock in a variety of shapes and manufacturers.

Choose the Onyx stainless steel models for durability (and for a household where you don't need a lot of them!) or go with the fun shapes and different sizes from Tovolo. There are plenty of choices, now you just need to decide what flavours to make! For a guide to some great flavours and combinations - from kid favourites to healthy alternatives to boozy adults-only versions, check out these recipes.

And don't forget that Father's Day is this weekend. If you don't think he'd like popsicle molds, maybe something in the BBQ or hot sauce department? But don't limit yourself, the options are endless, as always, at the Mercantile.

DIY Summer

Tovolo, Lekue and Onyx ice pop molds

In spite of the cool spring, we've already seen quite a run on our selection of ice-pop molds. But with summer starting to come seriously into view, we expect to see a lot more people coming in to find the best way to make their favourite easy summer treat.

We have a variety of styles, shapes and materials to choose from - from the classic rocket and playful "thumbsucker" molds in BPA-free plastic by Tovolo to the innovative horizontal silicon trays by Lekue (available singly or in sets of four - perfect if you have one of those dedicated flat ice-cube drawers in your freezer) and the super-durable, fast-freezing, easy-to-clean stainless steel models from Onyx.

Perhaps the best idea is to get a couple of different styles so you can have one reserved for the kids' treats and another dedicated to the grown-up ice-pops you might experiment with, like this one!
