When was the last time you had an unexpected moment of happiness (UMoH)? The people who put the POP in King of Pops hope it was when you had one of their popsicles in hand. Two brothers, Steven and Nick Carse turned their pushcart business into a dream come true one UMoH at a time.
The pops originate from the King of Crops which is a farm in Winston, Georgia. The locally sourced produce goes straight from the farm into the handmade pops. A few unique flavors include blackberry ginger lemon, chocolate sea salt, sweet tea n’ lemonade, banana puddin’ and raspberry rosewater. Some festive seasonal favorites include Mexican chocolate, pineapple habanero, and watermelon mojito. The farm manager grew up in Brookhaven and is now very happy to be giving back to the neighborhood that raised him. Grab a pop at farmers markets nearby. Join the Salad Club and pre-order locally grown produce—it'll be ready and waiting at the rainbow umbrella.
The happiness does not end there. King of Pops is a huge supporter of their community as a nonprofit organization. They give back to the community through programs such as Quality Care for Children (QCC) helping alleviate the problem of Georgia’s summer food gap and LifeLine Animal Project (LLAP) working to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in Dekalb and Fulton counties.
King of Pops has made many visits to elementary schools through their Little Kings program teaching young school children about setting up businesses and how to reuse foods in ways such as composting.
