EMILY ZAIDEN began experimenting with out-of-the-ordinary frozen pops in 2007. At the height of a Los Angeles heat wave, she decided to make adult pops for a dinner party with friends. The unusual flavors she chose were a hit, so she kept playing with new combinations. By the next summer, her own farmers’ market cart and wholesale business, The Popshop, was up and running.
Since then, The Popshop has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, BonAppetit.com, KCRW, LA Weekly, Phoenix New Times, and countless food and lifestyle blogs. The Popshop pops are sold at farmers’ markets and special events, and at fine food stores around Los Angeles.
