I was sent a 6-piece mold/container set from Bee Sili to review.  

On Amazon, these molds/containers are priced at $12.95 with free shipping if you have Amazon Prime.

Packaging & Presentation of the Bee Sili Lunchbox Containers & Ice Pop Molds

They finally arrived!  I was looking forward to this review, so without further ado...

Let's take a look at this packaging.  It's pretty colorful. Indeed it is.  But that's about it as far as that goes.  Wrapped in a cellophane bag (without a company logo), the (6) Bee Sili mold/containers were neatly packed as a set.  There were no instructions included.  

I know, I know.  Why would I need instructions for something so simple?  I like to think of it this way:  You are giving these to somebody as a gift.  When the recipient opens the gift, they are going to wonder what these colorful tubes are for.  Of course the directions are on Amazon, but do you really want to include a link to the product in your gift?  It would be so much easier if the manufacture included a little piece of paper that outlined the usage ideas for these.

Interior Package

The Bee Sili molds are 1.5" wide by 8" long.  Each of the molds hold 1/3 cup of product.  After unwrapping them, you can see that each mold is printed with a logo and includes an individual cap.

My Personal Experience with the Bee Sili Lunchbox Containers & Ice Pop Molds

When I found out that I was going to be reviewing these, I was pretty excited.  Since Charlie is in first grade now, he has to bring a lunch.  What better way to pack those 'loose' snacks than in a reusable container? (No more buying plastic baggies anymore-- yay!!)

Since these are designed to be lunchbox containers AND popsicle molds, I tested both methods of use.

The molds do have a plastic-y smell as soon as you take them out of the packaging, so please be sure to wash them before using them.  

To start with, I used this product as a lunch container.  I decided to pack some peanuts in the blue mold for Charlie's lunch.  It did fix exactly 1/3 cup with little room to spare.  They didn't spill at all, the cap held on nicely during the day.

Next, I used the product as an ice pop mold.  I made cherry popsicles!  I made up my mix, and then poured it on in.  It was very easy to get the proper amount in.  You stick the molds in a cup so they stand up straight and just pour the liquid in using a liquid measuring cup.

After about 2 hours of being in the freezer, we finally reached a solid freeze. Looking at the surrounding area in which I placed the mold in the freezer, there were absolutely no leaks from the lid or elsewhere. This was the easy part.  You take your popsicle out of the freezer and run some warm water over the tube.  It pushed out nice and easy-- no mess!

...and of course Charlie is enjoying it!

Pros of the Bee Sili Lunchbox Containers & Ice Pop Molds
  • Great way to save money and end useless waste products.  No more buying plastic bags for snacks.  No more buying plastic-wrapped popsicles.
  • Versatile.  Use as snack holders for your kids, pet treats on-the-go, ice pop molds, jello molds, and even (for adults only!) jello shooters!
  • Comes in a variety of colors suitable for either gender.
  • Small size allows these mold/containers to be ultra-portable.
  • FDA-approved food grade and BPA-free.
  • Dishwasher safe. (Yes, we all like this one!)

Cons of the Bee Sili Lunchbox Containers & Ice Pop Molds
  • They smell plastic-y right out of the package.
  • You have to be careful when you fill these with liquid and try to place the cap on.  If you do not leave room, it is going to overflow and create a large mess.
  • No instructions. This is a big one for me. It would be beneficial for Bee Sili's customers to quickly look at some usage ideas rather than having to go to Amazon to be reminded.


In short, I like these things.  They make it easy for me to pack Charlie's lunch in a pinch, and to also create a fun iced snack in no time.  If you are looking to slightly simplify your life, then go with the Bee Sili's.  You'll like 'em, the kid's'll like 'em and it is a win-win!
