Reviews for Orange Cream Pops
"I read the other reviews prior to making this recipe, but mine did not turn out. The pops didn't firm up enough after being frozen for 7 hours, so when I pulled the pop out of the mold, the stick came out and the pop was left behind. The texture of the pop was very soft and not really popsicle-like. I like the taste of the mixture used for the pops, but next time, I will pour this into a large bowl and freeze and then just scoop it out with an ice cream scoop. It had a the texture of a softened sherbert. I'm not sure if I did anything wrong or if this is the way it's supposed to be, but I was disappointed in the "popsicle" part of this recipe."
"very easy and good. I like the orange but other flavors might be good too."
"Very good and easy! Anxious to try different flavors."
"easy to make with ingredients on hand. Tasty too."
"I like to snack on cold things in the hot, hot summer. This fit the bill."
"My grandkids will be expecting these on a regular basis. easy, inexpensive, refreshing!"
"Everyone loved them. Grandma V"
"I only had 1% milk so used that. These reminded me of pudding pops. I was able to give one to a guest with gluten allergies when everyone was eating cake."
"I, too, used sugar free jello. I must say, tho.....I am glad we ate 3 of them before they hardened completely. In that state they were great! Allowing mine to harden completely made them too much like "ice" and not enough cream in the cream pops. BUT, they were good and I'll do them again."
"My son told me these taste just like the "whipped" orange cream yogurts from the store--we freeze them too. These are certainly MUCH cheaper and plus you can vary the flavor."
