When you think of algae -- or, yes, pond scum -- does a healthy and delicious dessert come to mind? Well, thanks to Florida-based Hero Pops, it should.
The creation of Vero Beach resident Michael Haggerty, a new line of vegan-vegetarian popsicles known as Pond Yum! aren't just another bland, boring health-nut treat you need to be forced into trying. Aside from delivering a dose of superfood, they're also surprisingly delicious -- and a great way to get you (and your kids!?!) a daily serving of phytonutrients.
How? The main ingredient that makes these naturally bright green pops extra-special: fresh, locally-grown spirulina.
Pond Yum is a unique product, the world's first popsicle to use flash-frozen, live and locally-grown blue-green algae, also known as the superfood spirulina.
