War -- What Is It Good For?

Nothing sells pops like a controversy. That’s why this morning’s am New York was as refreshing as a blueberry & cardamom pop at the Brooklyn Flea in Ft. Greene on July 11, 2009. While the article didn’t directly have anything to do with us, we decided that if the people’s pops wanted to be a player on the scene this summer, the people would immediately have to take a war footing.

And if we learned anything from last year’s Russia-Georgia War during the Olympics, it’s that nothing moves shave-ice like a proxy war. That’s why our media attack dog Nathalie Jordi drew a line in the sand when the July 1st New York Times hit newsstands:

“Right now the system actually favors the black market over people who want to do things right,” said Nathalie Jordi, an owner of People’s Pops, who makes frozen treats with ingredients like locally grown rhubarb and strawberries. “How can that be good for the city?”

Now that the people’s pops is officially “in play” you can catch us at the Brooklyn Flea in Ft. Greene this Saturday, and under the Brooklyn Bridge in DUMBO at the Brooklyn Bridge Flea on Sunday (or today if you work for one of the companies in NYC that was cool enough to treat their employees to pops). We’ll have an assortment of flavors this weekend including:

  • Blueberry & Cardamom
  • Peaches & Cream
  • Sour Cherry
  • Blueberries & Cream
  • Sour Cherries & Strawberry
  • Strawberries & Cream

We can’t guarantee what flavors will be available at what location, but during this time of war you need to give us your complete trust and not ask any questions.
