How do you come up with your flavors?
Most of the flavors were developed by the my friends in Atlanta who started the company. There are also flavors for which we come up with on the spot given certain ingredients. For example, I had a Peach-Nectarine pop a few weeks ago. I had spoken to Saunders’ Brothers Farms at SOJ about buying fruit from them and they gave me a crate mixed with both peaches and nectarines. So I just cut them all up and mixed them together. There was no set recipe for a pop given a certain amount of peaches and nectarines, it was developed on the spot.
