Make Your Own Lightsaber Popsicles

By Brent McKnight | 9 years ago

Admittedly it’s a bit late in the season for this. For some of us anyway. We’re on the verge of change, where it isn’t quite summer anymore, but it’s not quite fall. Still, lightsaber popsicle makers is a brilliant idea.

Never take candy from a Sith Lord

Not only can you wield the preferred weapon of the Jedi Knights, but it’s a delicious treat to boot. Using the Star Wars Lightsaber Ice Pop Set, you can turn juice or soda, or, if you’re so inclined like some of us, a more adult-themed beverage, into a popsicle. What better way to cool down on a sweltering summer day, while still letting the world know what space-centric science fiction franchise you favor?

Each set comes with four lightsaber hilts—two like Luke’s, two like Vader’s. See, you can even align yourself with the good guys or the dark side, depending on your leanings. This is also a sneaky way to peer into the psyches of our friends. Their choice of weapon can tell us a great deal.

Also, the hilts are battery powered, and an LED inside lights up the six-inch long blades. Eating ice pops in the dark just got a lot more entertaining. If only they made noise. Maybe the next generation will have that feature. Because of the batteries, though, the handles are not dishwasher safe—hopefully that much should be readily apparent.

At $34.99, plus shipping, the Star Wars Lightsaber Ice Pop Set is a little bit pricey, but you know you’re going to get at least that much enjoyment out of this. My only concern is that they might be too tall to fit in my freezer. Unless you have one of those deep, horizontal freezers in your garage, or something similar, you might want to measure your space before you place your order.
