    On the Weekend 50-Cavity Silicone Gummy Bear and Chocolate Mold with Bonus Syringe Review

    On the Weekend 50-Cavity Silicone Gummy Bear and Chocolate Mold with Bonus Syringe Review

    I love making yummy treats for my family in my kitchen. Over the past few weeks, I have seen a number of recipes for homemade gummy bears on my favorite social networks. While most of the recipes seemed simple enough to make, I lacked a gummy bear mold. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review a 50-cavity silicone gummy bear and chocolate mold with bonus syringe from On the Weekend in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity. My kids and I were both thrilled for me to try my hand at homemade gummy bears and other miniature treats.

    Price

    The 50-cavity silicone gummy bear and chocolate mold with bonus syringe from On the Weekend currently retails for $15.99 with a sale price of $9.99 on Amazon. The mold is priced comparatively to other silicone food molds of the same size and comes with a bonus syringe to make filling the cavities easier. In fact, I recently purchased a specialty silicone mold for about the same price, so I would definitely pay $9.99 for the gummy bear mold from On the Weekend. Plus, when a bag of gourmet gummy bears typically runs anywhere between $4 and $6, $9.99 for a mold that I can use again and again is an absolute steal. I therefore rate the current price of the 50-cavity silicone gummy bear and chocolate mold with bonus syringe from On the Weekend extremely highly.

    Performance

    To make my first bath of gummy bears, I used two packages of cherry sugar-free Jello mix and two packages of unflavored Knox gelatin. I combined the Jello and gelatin with 1/2 cup of boiling water over low heat. After stirring until the Jello and gelatin melted completely, I used the syringe to fill the silicone mold. I am so glad that the mold came with the syringe. I definitely would not have been able to fill the small bear cavities otherwise without making a huge mess! After I filled the cavities with my hot gelatin mixture, I popped the mold into the fridge until the gummy bears set. I finally popped the finished gummy bears out of the silicone mold. I was astounded at how quickly and easily my finished treats popped free from the silicone! I simply turned the mold upside down and pushed the finished treats out. I could pop the gummy bears out almost as fast as my daughter could devour the delicious snack! I rate the 50-cavity silicone gummy bear and chocolate mold with bonus syringe from On the Weekend extremely highly in terms of ease-of-use.

    Clean up was also a breeze. After popping out my finished gummy bears, I tossed the dirty mold in some hot soapy water. The few residual drops of hardened gelatin dissolved from the mold in the hot water. I did not have to scrub or work hard to clean the silicone. I also love that I can put the mold in my dishwasher. I have a special top rack in my machine that allows me to wash small flat items. The 50-cavity silicone gummy bear and chocolate mold from On the Weekend fits perfectly in the top rack. Washing the bonus syringe is also fairly easy. The bulb pops off the top of the plastic bottom, and then I soaked the two dirty parts in hot soapy water to dissolve the remaining gelatin. I rate the 50-cavity silicone gummy bear and chocolate mold with bonus syringe from On the Weekend extremely highly in terms of cleanup
