|Cortland Joyce owner of PopNature gourmet pops, at Fairchild Tropical |
Botanic Garden's Mango Festival
Joyce uses organic Demerara sugar, or agave nectar, purified water, local fruit, and organic fruit when he can, in his pops. “There’s less than one teaspoon of sugar in each Pop,” He said.
And according to his website not all flavors or ingredients are available all the time because he uses locally grown seasonal fruit. He also makes sure they are GMO-free.
Someone else asked why he was not selling his pops in Whole Foods Market and he said, “I need nutritional analysis labels on them. It costs $650 a flavor and I have 104 flavors."
I bought a Cilantro Limeade pop for $3 and liked it a lot. He said it was a crowd favorite.
Joyce is confident his pops will soon be available Nationally but until then you can find out more about them at http://popnature.com or call 786-567-8428
