Popsicles shouldn’t be enjoyed by children exclusively, nor should they be a guilty sugar-laden treat for adults. Ruby Schechter, founder and designer of The Better Pop, creates popsicles that crank up the health factor without sacrificing the taste.
Born from her quest to make probiotic consumption more palatable for her own mother’s digestive health issues, The Better Pop is a combination of kombucha – a probiotics-packed Japanese fermented tea drink – and fresh whole fruit in popsicle form. It’s a simple and efficient 2-ingredient recipe, and the fresh fruit factor opens up a world of exciting flavor combinations. Their menu is in constant creative evolution, offering classic flavors of strawberry or mango, to more exotic combos like Chili Pineapple Tamarind or Vanilla Apple Cinnamon.
The popsicles are presented in a patented geometric shape; the bite-sized sections are made for an overall sharing and eating experience. Faced with the choice between a sugary mass-produced popsicle or one that’s 100% plant-based, sugar-free and packed with probiotics, vitamins and minerals… well, no contest there. As Better Pop says, “If you’re going to treat yourself, why not treat yourself right?”
