Products with Pop.

ZOKU, producer of the patented Quick Pop Maker, describes itself as "a collective of creative individuals who create things that will make our lives better through intelligent design and engineering."

The Quick Pop Maker, the company's first product launch, is a prime example of this group's creative energy at work. This product freezes ice pops in as little as seven minutes right on the countertop, without the use of electricity It makes striped pops, yogurt pops or pops with flavored cores, in which the user can add fruit, candy or nuts.

Each Quick Pop kit includes six durable and reusable plastic pop sticks, each with unique ridged designs that allow pops to adhere securely, and with special drip guards to reduce the mess of eating. The user first creates a mold in the base unit and puts it in the freezer for 24 hours. He or she then removes the base and places the pop sticks inside the mold, and then pours juice into the mold.

A specially designed Super Tool helps to quickly release the frozen treats from their molds. The unit can make up to nine pops before refreezing the unit again.

Since the debut of the Quick Pop Maker in 2009, Zoku has let fly with two extensions to the line: the Duo Quick Pop Maker, with a more compact design than the original; and the Single Quick Pop Maker, which makes Quick Pops one at a time. if In the meantime, the original Quick Pop Maker has garn ered a number of honors. In 2010, it received an IDEA Silver from the International Design Excellence Awards, and an Excellence in Housewares Award as the top took and gadget in the United Kingdom.

Last year, it received the Good Housekeeping VIP (Very Innovative Product) award. Zoku's Quick Pop Maker
