Poppin' It Like It's Hot since 2011

I am so excited about today's post. It's been months in the making...
After jumping through permitting hurdles (and still jumping), I am proud to announce that
is open for business!

We will be peddling pops at the opening game for the one and only GEORGIA BULLDAWGS on September 3rd! We are proud to be a part of the Shepherd Center Society tailgate party which benefits Atlanta's Shepherd Center.

The day before I left for California to get married, Mr. Fonty and I had a last supper of sorts. Over dinner we came up with the idea of starting a popsicle company. We cracked ourselves up coming up with hip hop artist versions of popsicles.
Weeks later, I couldn't stop thinking about what was at the time a funny joke. Could this really be a business venture? We had a successful taste test party, which led to even more name ideas - thank you, Karen, Kelley, and Tish. It was obvious that popsicles just make people happy! I knew I had found my new endeavor.
