Folkets Pops is our brand of handmade sorbet popsicles/ice pops/icy poles/ice lolly/isglass/picolé/sorbetpinne made with sustainable ingredients and delicious seasonal flavors. Our fruit based pops are made with fresh rescued fruit, just enough Swedish beet sugar, water, and a bit of flavor from organic herbs, spices, citrus, or other natural ingredients. Our creamy vegan pops use organic coconut cream and/or oat milk and we use local organic dairy in our non-vegan pops.
1kr from every pop sold is donated to help save the bees via Naturskyddsföreningens Operation: Rädda Bina
Are your products organic?
While we use many organic ingredients in our production our pops are not 100% organic. Our organic and Fairtrade chocolate comes from Malmö Chokladfabrik and we use organic coconut products from Malmö based Wanna Merito's family farm in Thailand. There is not yet any organic production of sugar beets in Sweden and we choose to use locally produced sugar rather than imported organic cane sugar from South America. The fruit we rescue is sometimes organic and will be labelled as such.
Are your products allergy friendly?
We do not use any nuts in our production facility and only use chocolate from Malmö Chokladfabriks' nut free factory. We are conscious of other allergens as well and clean all equipment between batches. Most of our products are naturally vegan and free from gluten, but please see the product ingredients for more information and get in touch with your specific questions.
Do you have flavors without added sugar?
We have some flavors without added sugar, such as Banana Date and Green Grape, which are naturally sweet just as they are. We do not use any artificial sweeteners.
What is rescued fruit?
Rescued fruit, ugly fruit or surplus fruit is fruit that would otherwise go to waste due to overstock, short expiration, aesthetic flaws, packaging errors or various other reasons. In other words, perfectly edible produce that has been rescued from being wasted. 30% of the food we grow is wasted and we hope to reduce this figure by freezing rescued fruits into our delicious sorbet pops. This way we can increase the shelf life of fresh produce and offer you a delicous frozen treat made with sustainable ingredients.
