FoodWorks Silicone Ice Pop Molds Review

*Disclosure:  We received a press sample to facilitate this review: all opinions are 100% my own*
 We are hooked on these great popsicle molds from FoodWorks.  They are soft, flexible, and easy to fill, but best of all the covers are easy to snap on and are leak proof so no mess after filling or while freezing your favorite flavors.  These will be used constantly in my house, my kiddos eat popsicles non stop!

 We had fun making healthy fruit smoothie pops and they were delicious.
We blended up 2 cups of frozen pineapple chunks, a banana, and some apple juice.  Poured the smoothie mixture into the molds and put them in the freezer for a couple hours.
• Easy to use
• Make healthy desserts or an after workout snack
• Incredible value – with six molds, there’s enough for everyone to enjoy!
• Great for birthdays, pool parties or your next BBQ
• Reusable, reduces waste & saves money
• BPA free & dishwasher safe
• No popsicle sticks required

Just Fill, Freeze & Enjoy
They’re so easy to use! Just fill them with juice, purees, fruit, berries or yogurt for a healthy, everyday treat – and for much lower cost than popsicles or freeze pops at the store. For something more decadent, fill with sherbet, ice cream, candy, cocoa…whatever you can dream up! When they’re ready, just hold in your hand for a few seconds to warm the outside, then squeeze and enjoy with absolutely no sticking. Can’t finish your treat? Just pop the included lid back on and save the rest for later!

Xbox One is the place for games!
Xbox One was built by gamers, for gamers. With the best exclusive titles (Halo, Sunset Overdrive), the biggest blockbusters (Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty) the hottest sports franchises (Madden 15, FIFA 15, NBA 2K15) and top family titles (Fantasia: Music Evolved, Just Dance 15, Skylanders) Xbox One takes gaming to a whole new level.
In addition to being a great gaming console, Xbox one connects consumers unlike any other device.  Xbox One enables access to the latest TV shows and movies through your favorite apps.  With Xbox One all of your media is at your fingertips when you want it.
JBL Charge 2– Between the twin passive radiators for deep bass, the massive 6000mAh battery and the hands-free conference speakerphone the key benefit is the Bluetooth Social Mode which allows up to three different users to take their turns to play their own playlists on a single speaker.
JBL Flip 2– Aside from the dual performance-tuned JBL drivers and a built-in bass port, the key benefit of the JBL Flip 2 is the SoundClear echo and noise cancellation combined with the state-of the art microphone system to pick up calls on the speaker.
JBL Reflect Earbud headphones–  Sweat proof ergonomic design.  With a 5 hour rechargeable battery and a reach of about 40 feet, the JBL Reflect BT’s key benefit is the design of the ergonomic eartips along with the built-in magnets which keep your buds on standby without loose cables.
