Popsecret is a new Cape Town business that just launched 2 vegan popsicles: Peppermint, and Watermelon.
Popsecret is run by two sisters who wanted to create a range of refined sugar-free ‘plant-based’ popsicles for kids and adults. I asked them last week if they had any vegan popsicles, as they currently use honey to sweeten their popsicles. They said not at the moment but could look into sweetening one or two of their popsicle flavours with dates or coconut sugar. You won’t know unless you ask, right?
On the weekend, they replied again, to say that they had made vegan popsicle versions of 2 of their flavours. #nohoney – isn’t that just amazing! I got in my car and drove straight to the OZ (Oranjezicht) market in Granger Bay. I was so impressed by their effort, that I had to try their new, specially created, vegan peppermint with cocoa nibs as well as the watermelon flavour.
Both flavours are great, and I was happy to hear that, if there is a market for them, they will be making more options. So if you are ever at the V&A Waterfront on a weekend, get to the OZ market and ask Popsecret for a vegan popsicle. And they also sell frozen packs of 10, if you want to take some home.
I love supporting new start-ups that are so keen to make vegan options, if there is a demand for it. Please stop by their stall, say hi, try their vegan popsicles, and let me know what you think.
Where to buy?
Popsecret has a stall at the OZ market in Granger Bay, which is located at Granger Bay Boulevard in the V&A Waterfront, and is open every Saturday from 9am to 2pm, as well as Sunday from 9am to 3pm. Popsecret also attend other events, so you can DM them to find out where they’ll be next.
