Ice pops are synonymous with summertime, so when the temperature dips, we take our last licks.
But with Mompops — seasonal, icy creations made by a mother-son team — you can keep on slurping.
They come in classic flavors like mango and strawberry banana, but those that skew outside the box (creamy corn, chocolate sea salt, chamomile tea and strawberry) won us over. As the seasons change, look for flavors like sweet potato, eggnog, and apple pie.
The frozen desserts are made with local produce (when possible) and sweetened with agave nectar, so none exceed 100 calories. Plus, they’re vegan, gluten free, and nut free. Mompops will even whip up a custom creation for your next party.
So no one gets left out in the cold.
