"The flavor is uniform & well frozen. Love love love love it!"
"This is the story of the tricycle that could and did the impossible.. just so that she could provide us with some of the best damn popsicles on the island."
- Yelp Review, 5 stars
"..They’re full of flavor, and we love that they’re full of pulp from the ingredients. Best of all, they’re very light, so you could easily whack two or three in one sitting. Or four.."
- Melissa Chang, Nonstop Honolulu

Aloha Pops was created from a dream. I woke up one morning with the vision of making fresh, locally sourced hand crafted popsicles and delivering them on the streets of Honolulu from a custom made tricycle. I wanted to create something that was a fun, delicious experience and add a splash of Aloha! In keeping with the beauty of living in paradise I want to share the local flavors of our island and deliver them in an environmentally friendly way.
This past year for us was forever life changing as we overcame some serious legal challenges that had prevented us from selling Aloha Pops on the streets of Oahu. It was a little over a year ago that I was charged, as a criminal, for selling my popsicles from my custom made tricycle on the streets of Honolulu. We were up against an old law that was still on the books and had yet to have been challenged. We received fantastic legal representation with tons of local support from the community, media and our City Counsel. On April 4th we succeeded in having this law changed to allow us to vend on the streets of Oahu.
After all this, I am more passionate than ever about moving forward to take Aloha Pops to the next level, but I need your help! In order to increase my production to keep up with the demand, so I need to purchase commercial level equipment that will help me to produce Aloha Pops more efficiently. I also need to purchase another custom tricycle so I can deliver Aloha Pops all over the island and need packaging to help with our branding.
My goal is to create those special, nostalgic ice pop memories that we all enjoy reflecting on. Aloha Pops are for everyone who is young at heart! In return for your support, we've put together some very fun and refreshing rewards (just like Aloha Pops!). Just take a look at the chart below!
Risks and challenges
My biggest challenge was the legal system preventing us from selling our pops and we won! My next big challenge is being able to increase production to meet the demand, tricycles to increase our sales area and packaging to make our brand more visible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
