Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.
Last month at the Radiant Orchid Garden Party I noticed our hostess had fruit filled ice balls in glasses at the outdoor bar. I wanted to try one but with all the activities of the day I didn’t get a chance. Thankfully, I now have an opportunity to do a product review for Large Deluxe Ice-Ball-Molds by StyloPhora so I made my own.
I ordered the product on Thursday and it arrived from Amazon.com on Sunday – talk about quick delivery! Although I was impressed with the quick delivery, I was a bit concerned with the packaging. There were 4 pieces of cellophane tape across the top sealing the plastic tube which make me wonder if it was a returned item then hand sealed versus machine sealed. It was obvious that the molds weren’t used, otherwise I would have asked for a replacement.
My son decided to test one first and said he liked it, but then again, he just froze plain water to put into a pitcher of iced tea. I, on the other hand wanted to add fruit to the mold and use it in a pitcher of Sangria.
There are 3 silicon molds per pack and includes a collapsible funnel. After washing the molds I filled the bottom half with diced pineapples and mango chunks. I put the top on and using the funnel to fill the mold with water only to the black lines which allows for expansion.
I kept them in the freezer overnight, however, it only needs 4-6 hours to totally freeze. After freezing, remove the top half, then squeeze to release ice mold into a glass or pitcher.
Included on the instructions pamphlete for the Ice Ball Molds is a code for a bonus video on how to make crystal clear ice balls.
These slow melting ice balls are great for a party pitcher or added to an individual glass.
