Pops with a Purpose
Founder Erik Brust, who graduated from St. Olaf just this year, is a local who grew up shopping the White Bear Kowalski's Market. Erik was also acquainted with the late Jim Kowalski through their shared work for the charity Hazelden, where Brust's cousin Jonathan once sought treatment. When Jonathan died of a drug overdose four years ago, Erik and three pals started Jonny Pops in their friend's honor and named their company after him. Today the company gives back a portion of their profits to Hazelden. Also, printed on each stick is a simple good deed, which they hope will inspire popsicle lovers to make the world a better place one pop at a time. Jonny Pops are made with real fruit, cane sugar and cream – no sweetened colored ice cubes here! Look for Choco Latte, Summer Strawberry, Coconut Pineapple Paradise and Merry Mountain Berry in the Frozen Foods Department.
