I received these products for my review. All opinions are my own.
This is Luke! Our inspiration and one of the happy inventors of Zipzicle® zip-top ice-pop pouches.
In 2009, we discovered that Luke could not eat items that contained strong food dyes. Talking with other parents we soon found out we were not alone. Many children and adults have special dietary considerations, including those that are life threatening. Purchasing commercially available ice pops was not an option and overwhelmingly parents wanted healthy choices and the ability to make “real” food!
We began making our own ice pops at home using traditional hard molds with sticks. One day while in the car Luke made the comment, “too bad we can’t bring them with us.” Well that was all it took. It was our “aha!” moment. Soon we were all off and running with the idea for Zipzicle® zip-top pops.
Through extensive prototyping, market testing, and employing smart design, Zipzicle® ice-pop pouches are created with safety and convenience in mind, using BPA-free freezer-grade material. Listening to customer feedback, we also reinforced the side seals of the pouch resulting in optimal strength and durability. Working closely with top manufacturers in the food industry, we continue to seek improvements and add to our product line.
In May 2013 we launched the e-commerce website and have been moving fast ever since. In just a few short months we entered markets in 24 countries, and formed business partnerships in Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, and United States. Zipzicle® pouches were featured in SHAPE magazine, have appeared on Good Morning America, and are highlighted in the cooking, lifestyle, and health media. In 2014 we welcomed Cost Plus World Market, Lakeland UK, and All for Kitchen (NL) to our growing list of retailers!

I was super excited to try them, and knew my kids and family would love them! We had a little “Zipzicles” party at my house so a few of my friends and family could try them, and I sent them home with some to try out on their own. Here are a few of the things they had to say about these awesome Zip-top Ice-pop Pouches
“I LOVE that I can control the amount of sugar, and make sure these are healthy for my kids!” – Melissa
“I make smoothies all the time, these would be great for the leftovers- just pour them into a Zipzicle, and we have frozen treats for later!” – Jan
“They are so easy to use!” – Anna
We absolutely loved them. I love the idea of using a recipe, but when I tried them the first time, I basically made a smoothie, because I was anxious to try them out just using the fruits and vegetables we had in our kitchen. The experiement was a complete success! Here’s my ingredients an the process:
Zipzicles are SO easy to use, it’s really one of those ideas that is simple and genius all in one, and has you saying “why didn’t I think of that?” My kids love frozen treats in the summer, but I don’t like all the added sugar and other dyes and sweeteners, and who knows what else? Now I can easily give them a fun treat, that I know is good for them! Zipzicles will be a summer must-have for you and your little ones! See below for a great discount code!
