While much of the country is experiencing record-setting temperatures this summer, at least one innovative Dad has found a way to beat the heat, make kids smile, and build a thriving part-time business at the same time. When entrepreneur (and self-proclaimed "Old-School Popsicle King") Bill McAdoo got fed up with the commercial brands of popsicles that he saw for sale in the big box grocery stores, he decided he could do much better.
And a cottage industry was born.
"I just remembered making homemade popsicles with my parents when I was a kid out of real ingredients like fruit and juice. Half the fun was that we'd freeze them ourselves in our kitchen, and 60 minutes later they'd be ready to eat! It was so much fun to make them ourselves, and I always thought these ice pops tasted 10 times better than anything you could buy in a store," Mr. McAdoo said.
He continues, "So I called my Mom when things started to get hot this Summer, and asked her for some of those old popsicle recipes that we used to make when I was a kid. Then I whipped up a cooler full of popsicles one Saturday morning, and handed them out to the boys at my son's little league baseball game."
The result of the children's taste test didn't surprise Mr. McAdoo, but it shocked and delighted the other parents at the ball-game. In fact, 23 out of 30 kids said that not only did they love the homemade popsicles, but that they were "way better" than the ones they get from the store.
The average box of a dozen popsicles in a grocery store costs between $3 and $6. Parents who choose to make homemade popsicles for their kids end up paying a quarter of that…and they can better control what their kids eat at snacktime.
"It was such a hit with the kids and their parents, I knew I had to share this with other people. So I collected about 2 dozen of my Mom's secret recipes, and found a manufacturer that could create some popsicle molds that looked just like the homemade popsicles we used to make 30 years ago. I was even able to make some improvements to the original molds that I used as a kid...The plastic is BPA-free, and I designed these with drip-proof handles to keep kids' hands & baseball uniforms clean. I then bundled these popsicle molds and my family's favorite recipes together and got them listed at Amazon.com earlier this summer. And let me tell you...the response has been overwhelming!"
"This is a perfect summertime treat, but we will definitely be making them all year long now. All you need are some popsicle molds, add some juice or yogurt, pop ‘em in the fridge, and an hour later you've got a healthy treat that you'r kids will want you to make over and over again! And believe me, it's a lot cheaper to make them yourself than to buy them from the store." Mr. McAdoo said.
