    In the spring of 2015, Danielle Welke of Mid Mitten Homemade had an idea to combine fresh, seasonal Michigan produce with juices, sweeteners and herbs to create a unique farm-to-table frozen treat. The results, now available in select places around Mid Michigan, are the delicious MI Ice Pops.

    Danielle plans to use as much Michigan product as she can in her pops, including fruits, vegetables, herbs, chocolate from Mindo and coffee from Bloom Roasters. MI Ice Pops currently boasts the following flavors: Thai ice tea, dairy free fudgesicle, iced coffee, strawberry tarragon, strawberry lemonade, rhubarb/ elderflower and possibly a strawberry/jalapeno variety on the way. Danielle intends to work her way through the summer season’s produce as it becomes ripe in the Mitten with 75% of her flavors derived from her home state. In the next month, it is expected that MI Ice Pops will have new flavors combining apricot, peach and blueberry.

    MI Ice Pops are currently being created by Danielle on a trial and error basis in a shared commercial kitchen in Webberville, MI. The pops are available at the Old Town General Store markets, Allen Street Market on Wednesdays from 2:30pm – 7:00pm, and Lansing’s South market starting in July 2015. The pops will also be available at various festivals through Mid Michigan, including the Great Lakes Renewable Energy Conference and REO Town Eats.

    MI Ice Pops currently offer two different pop sizes; a mini ice pop ($2) and a regular ice pop ($3). Danielle plans to include the pops for catering events such as food conferences, wedding showers and birthday parties.
