Celebrate with Pop Craft

Citrus Season is in Full Swing!


Donna Tororice of Pop Craft knows what to do when life hands her bushels of Florida citrus: make popsicles. And she’s doing just that, to the tune of incredibly inventive flavors that are as seasonal as they are delicious. For someone like Donna, the flavors of the season are full of inspiration, which translates to frozen treats that pack punch. But for Pop Craft, the flavor profiles are much more nuanced and carefully planned than just reaching for what is ripe and leaving imagination far behind. That’s how popsicles like Blood Orange and Lemongrass are born. “I use a local supplier for all of my exotics, like lemongrass. They’re a wonderful company and their honey is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. When the bees are pollinating jackfruit and bananas and star fruit, their honey is out of this world.”  If exotics aren’t your preference, try out the citrusy, sweet Pomelo Orange Blossom, which has high fragrant notes thanks to the orange blossom essence. A labor of love, the Tangy Kumquat flavor requires hand seeding of each tiny fruit. The sweetness of the juice is balanced by the tart, candy like flavor of the peel, which is added in for a twist on the flavor profile that is unlike anything else on the menu. Take advantage of this season’s bounty by stopping in for frozen treats you can’t get anywhere else.
