Update #12

Aloha Pops is growing, thanks to you!

Comment

Dear Backers!

I know it's been a very bumpy road, but we are at the end of it and thanks to the support each and every one of you provided, Aloha Pops is successful and growing! I know there were definitely issues, from communications and using Kickstarter's updates properly, to unexpected shipping challenges, but as of this week, almost all the rewards have been shipped or delivered! The only ones remaining are a few odds and ends, some returned packages, and unfilled surveys. If you haven't received your reward yet, don't panic, just please contact me at sills0608@mac.com and I will make sure to get you sorted out! 

To everyone, thank you again for sticking with Aloha Pops through everything! As a sole business owner and operator, I do everything personally and while I may not be the most savvy at the internet or other things, I do make a damn good pop! I've learned a lot in the Kickstarter process and many of you have stepped forward to help me with the rest. Thank you. Now, because of you, Aloha Pops is growing and receiving new opportunities. I'm going to focus on meeting that next challenge and doing what I do best, which is make the best local pops in Hawaii! 

Thank you again and please come by and say hi!

Kathy Sills,
Aloha Pops


Update #11

Aloha Pops Mania

Comment

I am really excited to start 2013 with a brand new popsicle machine! Since I turned the machine on I hit the ground running and haven't stopped. Sunday afternoon I picked up our custom Aloha Pops tricycle and am only waiting to get it certified by sanitation. Look out Oahu!!

I finally sent out surveys so please get them back to me so I can get everyone their goodies. I apologize for taking so long.

Thanks again to all of you who made this happen for me!

Update #10

It's Not Over 'Til It's Over!!

Comment

WOW! We did it! The suspense was intense as we followed the clock down to the final 14 minutes. I knew we could do it and with the help of family, friends, and social media, the tricycle that could, did!

I just wanted to tell all of you that supported Aloha Pops, THANK YOU. Once everything clears through Amazon I will start working on getting the rewards out to all of you. It usually takes about 15 days to process through Amazon so with the Holidays being upon us it looks like it will be after the first of the year.

In the mean time Mele Kalikimaka e Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Update #9

We are still going strong with only 58 hours to go!

Comment

I know we can do this with only 58 hours to go! This morning I counted a few more grey hairs from the pressure and excitement but that's what keeps my life exciting! Even though we are well into winter, Aloha Pops continue to fly out of the cooler! That is what makes living in Hawaii so awesome! Where else can you live where you can sell popsicles pretty much 365 days a year?

I received a special order from Mrs. Claus to be picked up Christmas Eve and I wanted to share it with everyone:

Dear Kathy,
Word of your Aloha Pops has reached the North Pole!
Santa has requested a special order of your delicious Aloha Pops instead of the same ol’ cookies and milk. The order is as follows and please label them accordingly:

Dasher - Chocolate Peanut Butter
Prancer - Lilikoi
Comet - Coconut
Donder - Passion Orange Guava
Dancer - Pineapple Coconut
Vixen - Chocolate dipped Strawberry Creme
Cupid - Pineapple Li Hing
Blitzen - Green River
Rudolph - One of each flavor(he’s been working really hard)
Santa - Blue Vanilla (I love his blue lips)
last but not least I would love one of your Salted Caramel.

                            Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,

                                                          Mrs. Claus

P.S. Rudolph was wondering if you could throw in some of your really cool Aloha Pops stickers?


Update #8

It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year

Comment

Can you believe that we are just one week away from Christmas! We have been busy with Christmas preparations, making lots of Aloha Pops and getting around to enjoy all of the Christmas light displays. One of the best parts of owning your own popsicle business is trying all of the different flavors of the Holidays.

Kaka`ako Park has a beautiful Christmas light display with lots of colors!
