  1. Alisha

    I would definitely make strawberry kiwi popsicles! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  2. Megan Presley

    I’d love to try making an orangesicle type! I always loved those as a kid!

  3. Kathryn Mattus

    So many options…a mixed berry would be so good, but I also love a tropical “pinapple-y” goodness also :~)

  4. Anna Chan

    I have a recipe for frozen raspberry pie, that would be better suited for a popsicle.

    Ps, I don’t think your instagram link in the entries is working.

  5. Brittany

    Well, you mentioned Eggnog in your description, so I’d probably have to make some eggnog popscicles because now I’m craving it!

  6. rissa7gabs

    I was just thinking of popsicles the other day. Now the weather is warming up i am ready for homemade popsicles. I want to make some tropical smoothie ones and also blueberry smoothie. Hmm maybe a tropical watermelon one…. Lots of options!

  7. Stefanie S.

    I’d make a raspberry-blueberry-red currant-lime-sparkling water-popsicle for the kids in my family that will sparkle on and color their tongues ;-D and a virgin caipirinha one for me and my girls 😉

  8. Nichole Franklin

    We’ve been eating paleo style, so I’m thinking a coconut based chocolate pudding pop… 🙂

  9. Jess

    Loving all these giveaways! I’ve never seen molds like this before, super cool for summer!

    1. Jess

      Realizing I didn’t pick a flavor: I think I would do a coconut flavor, maybe with some strawberries in there.

  10. Tracy Cottongim

    I would make Mango!!!! I have heard so many good things about the Zoku brand.

  11. Christina

    ooh summer treats! I love strawberry…the kid loves mango…have never tried the combination…

  12. Tina

    What a fun giveaway! I don’t know which flavor I would try first, probably strawberry, watermelon, or pudding pops. 🙂

  13. Amy J.

    I usually make popsicles out of leftover smoothies, so . . . probably some form of berry flavor ;).

  14. Chantel

    I’d make something with a mango in it!!! There’s a tree in my back yard, so there’s plenty of them to make popsicles! 😀

  15. Lisa Mu

    I’d have to check with my kids to see what they’d want, but strawberry or cherry sounds good.

  16. Stacie

    It’s a toss up between lemon (my son’s favorite) or fudgsicles (my daughter’s favorite) – or maybe I’d have to try something new so there wouldn’t be a fight!!!

  17. Eliz Russell

    I have a giant bag of mixed frozen fruit from Costco – I’d use that. I’m not sure what fruits are in the blend exactly… Perhaps mango, peach, strawberry? Hmm…Let’s just call them Costco pops 😉

  18. Sarah Bauer

    My kids have been asking to try kombucha popscicles, so that’s probably what I’d do first.

  19. Jessica T

    My daughter tried making cucumber, lime, mint popsicles a couple weeks ago, but they separated in our regular popsicle molds and weren’t that tasty. I told her we have to get a Zoku again! We had one, but the freezy stuff inside leaked out so we had to stop using it. So if we win, we’d have to make her popsicles again!

  20. mommy2darlings

    Wonderful giveaway!! I would love to make some strawberry and mango popsicles.

  21. Gabriele Ibarra

    I’m loving coconut right now, so I would probably make a coconut/pineapple popsicle:) my boys would love it!!

  22. Jennifer S

    I vote for strawberry lemonade, made in the fish and sea creature molds! Yum and fun!

  23. Janet

    I have never used these before. But, I think strawberry sounds delicious and refreshing!

  24. Raye

    I’d make cherry strawberry first for my little guy and (let’s just be honest here) mocha cappuccino for me…. 🙂

  25. Kimberly

    Tough choic. I have two fun books of healthy pops. Right now strawberry lemon is sounding yummy.

  26. Cara Matheny

    The strawberry lemon sound good! Although i think i would head for the chocolate shake first!

  27. Virginia

    Probably watermelon! I’ve seen some pretty whole fruit ones that I’d like to try.
