The 'total time' field needs to be updated... the first two layers need to each freeze for 30 minutes, then once fully assembled for 6 hours. Prep time may only be 30 minutes total, but you won't be eating these treats in under a half hour!

The old "bait & switch", eh? It's very misleading to show a picture of a pop that is obviously not the result of making this recipe. That red, white & blue pop *is* very colorful & vibrant, but if you follow this recipe, you will clearly not end up with a pop that looks like that - unless of course you add blue food coloring to the blueberry layer, & strain the puree so there are no fruit solids at all in the pop. At least you included the video so we could REALLY see what the pops look like.
