I laugh when I think about the way my life was headed back in 2012. Medical school? Really?
Don’t get me wrong, I think I’d make an excellent doctor! At least one for teddy bears or imaginary friends.
But what I’m doing now is exactly right. Instead of prescribing medication, I’m providing a more refreshing treatment with my Lick’d pops!
I’ve always loved baking and coming up with new gourmet flavors, and when the farmers market said they were full of bakers, I put my love on ice. Lick’d pops were born in just a few days and I was selling our seasonal flavor line at Harmons in a matter of weeks!
For the first two years I made every pop by hand. It was absolutely nuts, but I loved having my hands (literally and figuratively) in every step of the process. Even now our pops are made in small, manageable batches so we can adjust recipes using the freshest ingredients and make sure every pop is up to par.
Now that we’re selling in Harmons, Whole Foods, and a few select local stores, we’re excited that more and more of you are getting familiar with our tasty creations! To me, it’s still just my little dream coming true, and I’m glad you’re a part of it.
