    These freezer pops are wonderfully refreshing on a hot day. I made exactly as directed and used my Push Pop-Up molds. I love having new ways to use cantaloupe and this recipe is a great one! Thanks, ocurt Schrock!

    I made this yesterday. Since I didn't have popsicle sticks or anything that would work well for a popsicle mold, I just poured the mix into an ice cube tray. Even though my cantaloupe wasn't all that sweet, the final product turned out a little sweeter than I would have preferred. Next time, I think I will reduce the sugar some and consider using either honeydew or strawberries in lieu of the cantaloupe. But that's just a matter of personal preference. I will definitely be keeping this recipe around to experiment with. Thanks!

    These were great! They remind me of a Weiss Bar that we have in Australia - the kids loved them too

    Yum! I made these last night and they turned out great! Instead of the whipping cream I used one can of Non-fat evaporated milk. Also I cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup and it was definitely sweet enough! I think next I will try this recipe with honeydew! Thanks for the recipe:)

    My canteloupe was very ripe, so I actually reduced the sugar to only 1/2 cup and I was very happy with the sweetness. Bursting with summery canteloupe flavor and creamy and yummy. I got 8 popsicles in my mold and still had enough mixture for about 4 more leftover. I definitely think that you could use less cream and more canteloupe or evaporated milk to make this a little less decadent. Kind of like creamsicles, but with cantaloupe flavor instead of orange.
