My popsicle journey
Curly Girl Pops, LLC is a Latina owned, small batch healthy popsicle business located in Vermont. Our mission is found in the logo above: simple, healthy, made from the heart.
The break down: Simple signifies preparation with few but MIGHTY ingredients. No GMOs, artificial colors, or flavors. We keep it 100% real with certified organic fruit & veg (locally sourced when available), filtered water, and VT maple syrup. We also incorporate herbs, super foods and seeds to elevate our products nutritional value. Curly Girl Pops are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, & protein, our bodies depend on. To complete the process, all pops are made and wrapped by hand. Keeping the planet in mind (compostable packaging); with love infectious enough to spread.
The popsicle journey started as a hobby. In 2015 , my mom bought me my first recipe book POPS! by Krystina Castella. I felt a strong connection to the book and became reignited with creativity. I became very inspired by the unlimited flavor combinations, spending my earnings for popsicle ingredients.
Soon enough, I had close friends and family try my earliest creations such as PB&J, Blueberry Maple, and Strawberry Cookie Dough. The frequent response was : ___ would love these! I knew I was onto something.
It wasn't until after I earned my B.S. in Nutrition & Food Sciences at UVM where I had an AHA! moment. Why not combine my passion to promote healthy eating habits and part-time popsicle hobby into an actual business? And there it was... My initiative to nourish the community through pops started.
