Reviews for Homemade Fudge Ice Pops
"Really good. All of my family loves it."
"Made this with my five year old, simple enough for her to help out extensively. We put ours in shaped ice cube trays for smaller servings. We jab a toothpick into the pop when it's time to eat it. Much less meltage that way."
"Made these for my 3 year old yesterday & we tried them today. We're not fans. Followed the recipe exactly, and maybe this is how they're supposed to be, but they were very chewy. More like eating hardened pudding. What a waste of ingredients & money. Will just buy them from now."
"Horrible, my 11 yr gson wouldn't even eat them. I followed the recipe exactly. Left a film in your mouth, butter maybe."
"I've never eaten a fudge pop that didn't taste like frozen pudding! mmmmmmm"
