    I'd love making these Treats for my Niece's, and Nephew's. Plus, Great-Niece, and Great-Nephew too. However, some of them are allergic to the Lime Sherbet, and Chocolate Chips. So, what can I do, to substitute for these Iteams?

    Are they organic and non-GMO?

    What are the disposable cups that are referred to in recipe & where would you buy them?

    Using an ice cream maker to prefreeze the watermelon cuts down on prep time. I used a thin layer of vanilla between the sherbet and watermelon layers and the mini chips that are used as an ice cream topping. Not exactly sure the chocolate goes with watermelon. Maybe next time I will use candied sunflower seeds. Everyone else liked it though.

    Cute and fun! I will use an ice cream maker for the watermelon next time. Wish I'd read that review earlier! But it was still easy without one. I used popsicle molds. Only warning is the sherbet melted much faster than the watermelon so could get pretty messy, but my son just scooped it off and ate it first :)

    In view of the fact that, I am a Grandpa to three beautiful grandchildren (7yrs.; 4yrs.; and 3yrs.). It will be great to introduce a very delicious treat for them; nourishing, too. Thanks so much. An excited Grandpa Gord !!

    These are great my grandkids loved them. They are a little more difficult to make then most but are worth it.

    Where do you get these popsicle molds & what are they made of ? One recipe says you can peel away the mold, so are they also disposable ? Thank You........

    Instead of chocolate chips use #SunRype Strawberry Watermelon Fruit to Go Strips (cut up) and instead of sugar use raw honey!
