Unlike commercial pops made with high-fructose corn syrup and other sugars, Fru Fru Pops are barely sweet, meaning you taste the main ingredients first. We love the avocado-lime with coconut milk and the caramel-tasting mesquite bean, which is made with mesquite syrup that Adkins boils from hand-harvested mesquite beans and swirled with cream from Yuma.

Adkins, a member of the Phoenix Street Food Coalition, says, “I generally have six flavors at any given time, including some that everyone will like, some with fruit and herb and some out-of-the-box flavor (such as mulberry-lavender) for the adventurous.”

Find Fru Fru Pops at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market on Saturdays ($2.50 each), or special order them through the Fru Fru Pops website.
