The International Home + Housewares Show was held in Chicago on March 7-9. At this year’s event, novelty shapes for both frozen-treat molds and ice cubes ruled, according to Editorial Correspondent Julie Smith Vincenti.
Look below for some of The Trend Curve’s favorite new shapes from the market:
1. Zoku’s Character Pop Molds: You decide the color and flavor and let these molds do the rest to make fruit juice, flavored yogurt or chocolate and cream into a fun treat. Just pour the ingredients into one of eight Character Pop molds, insert the reusable heart-shaped sick and freeze it!
2. Mini Pop Molds from Cuisipro: Cuisipro’s new Mini Pop Molds are perfectly size for little hands—and little imaginations, too! Each BPA-free dinosaur, safari or farm-themed set features a patented Snap-Fit design that secures multiple molds together for storage.
3 Silicon Zone’s Popsy molds: With a unique design that prevents the mold from tipping, this product is easy enough for kids to use themselves. Just fill the six-cavity Popsy with your favorite mix to create home-made popsicles.
4. Tovolo Novelty Ice Trays: Why should ice cubes be flat, geometric and boring? Tuvalu offers a variety of shapes, including hearts, anchors and owls, to give ice cubes new character.
