What could be better than summertime in the Twin Cities?
How about summer in the Twin Cities with gourmet, farm-fresh ice pops?!? We're talkin' about Watermelon Mint, Strawberry Basil, Sweet Corn, Bluegrass (blueberry & lemongrass), Vietnamese Coffee, Rhubarb, Lavender Lemonade, Vanilla Beet, and many more amazing flavors. We're 10,000 Licks, and we buy the best local fruits, herbs, and dairy from local farmers whenever possible, and whip them into delicious icy treats. What's not to love?
Trouble is, it's really expensive to start a food business--even one without a storefront! To sell our pops at farmers' markets, local events, and to make them available for weddings and parties, we need commercial kitchen space, a freezer cart, tons more ice pop molds, packaging (biodegradable, of course), and half a dozen permits and licenses. It adds up to about 10,000 bucks (not just licks, unfortunately). That's where you come in. By sparing a few bucks now, you'll not only get to partake in our quirky pop rewards (see list at right), you'll be part of a homegrown initiative to bring creative, made-from-scratch, delicious ice pops to the Twin Cities. If you can help us get to our first 10,000 licks, we'll take it from there!
