These delicious and colorful treats create fun at any event. Better yet....we make them with natural colors & real fruit flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, Non-GMO, no nuts, and low in sugar!

Meet the only frozen party pop that glows in the dark!

Our natural frozen treats get your party glowing. From birthdays to holidays...or just regular days, GlowCicle™ party pops keep kids of all ages entertained, especially when the lights go out. (This means adults too!) 

We call them a Party-in-a-Box. By adding innovation and imagination to a frozen treat, GlowCicle™ brings any event to life!  As you'll see in our "Facts & Ingredients" section below, we strive to bring health-conscious enjoyment to you and all your party friends.

GlowCicle™ is the simple way to make anytime special. Holidays come around once a year and memorable events should happen more often, so make them all spectacular with GlowCicle™ frozen treats!

We created GlowCicle™ for you:  Fun, creative, conscientious and mindful people who like to bring a little sparkle and flair to special occasions; and for parents who want their kids to be happy, healthy and imaginative.

The more we've learned about food production, and the effects it has on our bodies and our planet, the more we realized that it's crucial to do our part and develop products that are health conscious.

Unlike many other Kickstarter projects, GlowCicle™ frozen treats are READY NOW for commercial production and retail placement. Our ST. PATRICK'S DAY CUSTOM DOUBLE GLOW is an **Early Bird Kickstarter Reward* that you can receive 2 months after our campaign ends!

We are pleased to offer this delicious product for children and parents alike, and we're excited to share the GlowCicle™ brand with you.

These fun & thoughtful frozen treats will excite your taste buds, and bring any event to life!
These fun & thoughtful frozen treats will excite your taste buds, and bring any event to life!

It's not an organic carrot stick, but it IS a delicious & fun frozen treat made with natural colors and flavors, No-GMOs and packaged in a environmentally-friendly 100% recyclable container. 

We went to great lengths to create GlowCicle™ with a courageous attitude of being "different & better" with our ingredients. To that end, we crafted a secret recipe that's not only delicious, but most importantly contains ingredients we are truly proud of. 

GlowCicle™ frozen treats are currently available in 100 ml (3.4 fluid oz) tubes, and contain 78 calories per pop. Per 1 oz serving: 22.3 calories and 5.7 grams of sugar.

Unlike most other frozen treats, GlowCicle™ pops are shipped and stored at room temperature so you can keep them almost anywhere until you're ready to enjoy them.  Remember to allow 3 hours for freezing.

When you're ready to indulge, simply snip the top off your frozen treat, bend and activate the glow stick, and slip it into our patented side pouch. It's that easy. Then use the glow stick as a warm handle while enjoying your GlowCicle™ and let the fun begin!

GlowCicle™ frozen treats are super easy to enjoy!
GlowCicle™ frozen treats are super easy to enjoy!

But wait...there's more... when your frozen treat is through, simply remove the glow stick to make a glowing bracelet. Or connect several to make necklaces, headbands, sculptures...anything you can dream up

GlowCicle™ frozen treats come in 6 natural colors to match your mood or party theme.  We also created a delicious and super secret, tropical fruit recipe as our refreshing trademark flavor.  Our mouthwatering and not-too-sweet blend features hints of real pineapple, orange, lime, cranberry and Tahitian vanilla.

We don't like to brag, but our fruit flavor blend has been getting a lot of attention. At first, it surprised us - we thought the notion of a single flavor (fruit flavor blend) might discourage some people. Just the opposite. People consistently tell us how much they love the delicious flavors!

It's unusual for any 2 people to taste the same things in GlowCicle™ frozen treats. Depending on the color of pop, some people claim to taste watermelon, banana, cotton candy, cherry, or even blueberry. 

We're proud to offer GlowCicle™ pops in 3 slightly different and unique styles to complement your next party or event.

Our product styles (variations) - all three options are represented in our Kickstarter rewards.

GlowCicle™ frozen treats are "friends and family" safe.

What about the glow sticks?  Our product is smartly designed so neither the glow stick nor the connector ever comes into contact with your mouth.

A few of our favorite customers!  We look forward to add you to our list.

These are just a few places where people have experienced GlowCicle™ frozen treats.  Because we also offer Customized and Personalized label options, your possibilities for including GlowCicle™ frozen treats at your next event or celebration are greatly increased.

With just a little imagination - you can find dozens of places & occasions to enjoy GlowCicle™ frozen treats.

The creation of GlowCicle™ was a long process. After experimenting with several different prototypes, we landed on the perfect package design.

Not only does our package help maximize consumer enjoyment of the product, it's unique form and function also enables us to protect the concept with a US Utility Patent.

Kickstarter is an amazing global platform designed for people to share & receive backing for their creations.  We need your help and support to provide broad exposure and backing to GlowCicle™.

Unlike many other Kickstarter projects, GlowCicle™ products are READY NOW for commercial production and retail placement. We need your backing to demonstrate broad consumer acceptance, and we also plan to take the following steps in the coming 120 days:

1.) Print our next generation of branded GlowCicle™ film. We achieve a substantial cost efficiency when we print a large volume. Fulfilling your rewards will help us forecast our film requirements and take a big step toward achieving the cost savings we need for our branded film purchase.

2.) Begin construction of a world-class eCommerce website.  This project will take several months to complete, and we'd like to begin ASAP to have our new site working for Summer 2016.

3.) Develop Marketing & Promotional Materials.

4.) Confirm Retail & Distribution partnerships.

5.) Further develop our product platform.

Risks and challenges

We are experienced entrepreneurs, inventors and successful business problem solvers. We moved beyond the "prototype stage" a few years ago, and are now production-ready with specialized manufacturing equipment, market-ready natural flavors & colors, product packaging and lots of retail boxes.

We worked hard to identify potential risks to our success, and all the eliminated obstacles we could imagine. While still early stage, GlowCicle™ is much MUCH MORE than a great concept and a set of prototypes. We have invested deeply into the success of this venture. We can make GlowCicle™ pops today, and we're production-ready!

Patent -
Our approved Utility Patent was expensive and challenging to obtain, but it protects our unique & novel packaging;

Machine -
We designed and purchased a one-of-a-kind machine that successfully makes GlowCicle™ pops. We've operated this machine for more than 2 years, so we know it's dependable and works really well.

Production -
We prepare all aspects of GlowCicle™ frozen treats in our own proprietary and licensed facility. This is super important, because it enables us to consistently make fresh GlowCicle™ pops on-demand and maintain stable inventory levels. Aside from the Kickstarter rewards that rely upon aquiring our next generation GlowCicle™ branded film, there are no other issues that could reasonably delay fulfilling our Kickstarter rewards.

Retail Box -
We developed and printed a substantial supply of attractive and distinctive GlowCicle™ retail boxes that will be used to ship our Kickstarter rewards and also used when presenting our product at retail.

Market Interest -
During 2015, we attended food industry trade shows and consumer events around the US. We shared our GlowCicle™ products with thousands of consumers, retailers and the media. People universally love the taste and the concept.

With all this good news, we also need to responsibly acknowledge that not all aspects of this business are fully within our control.

Vendor Management -
Our commercial success requires managing several vendors who produce the components and ingredients which enable us to manufacture a final product. Our food grade film, glow sticks, and liquid ingredients are sourced from different vendors.

We have enjoyed positive experiences dealing with all our vendors, and have vetted them carefully. To mitigate potential risks associated with potential inability to meet our needs, we have also created relationships with alternate vendors, so we can react quickly should any supply issues arise.

Machine -
Our commercial success requires maintaining good working machinery. We have solid experience over the past 24 months operating our custom built machine and all the related components.

To date, we have produced thousands of GlowCicle™ pops. We also have a substantial spare parts inventory, and the know-how to make repairs as necessary. Equally important, we have the capability to replicate our one-of-a-kind machine as production needs require.

We are proud to share that we're prepared to deliver high quality rewards to all of our Kickstarter backers, and look forward to further developing our retail relationships.

While no production effort is without its potential for hiccups, we are confident that our substantial experience (which led us to our current product offering), plus our experience in developing this business to-date, will enable us to keep our backers engaged and informed throughout the Kickstarter process AND further help us to bring the GlowCicle™ brand into broader commercial markets.
