Michael Haggerty’s Hero Pops opened as a mobile stand on the Vero Beach corner of 14th Avenue and 21st Street in September of 2010.
Hero Pops effort to provide customers with handmade natural popsicles made from fresh seasonal fruits has been successful.
Today, Hero Pops can be found in a handful of locations across south Florida, including two Nutrition S’mart locations, Village Beach Market, Nutrition World, and the Fort Pierce restaurant, Cravings. Patrons rave about these vegan, nutrient dense, and gluten free pops.
“The best pops on the planet!” raves Nichole Anha Rouse, frequenter of the Wednesday Ft. Pierce Green Market and Food Co-op, on Hero Pops facebook page.
Their long list of available flavors include: raspberry lemon, orange cream, pistachio, watermelon agave, lime coconut, green tea and several chocolate dipped flavors, such as chocolate dipped tapioca.
These terrific and healthy treats are perfect for anyone under Florida’s sun and are always made without the use of dyes or artificial ingredients.
Michael introduced his new line of merchandise, Pond Yum, earlier this year. Pond Yum is a vegan, gluten-free line of popsicles, drinks and smoothie boosters. 25 percent of Pond Yum is composed of the algae and super-food spirulina.
Those interested in a quick and tasty nutrient boost can seek out Hero Pops and Pond Yum from any of their retailer’s locations.
