With the Australian summer setting in, we’re hoping to see more businesses like Six Strawberries springing up.
Six Strawberries is a Seattle artisan ice pops company who pedal their mobile popsicle carts from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. They specialise in dairy-free popsicles (or ice lollies as the Brits call them) with a focus on local ingredients and interesting flavors such as Peanut Butter and Jelly, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and Thai Iced Tea.
It took six months of experiments in a home kitchen to devise the unique flavors, with the two founders learning the chemistry behind varying freezing temperatures, improving the workflow and of course lots of tastings. Their photo stream of happy customers is making us jealous!
And when the winter sets in, the founders go back to their day jobs – karaoke host and film maker.
