We all know that most soda is unhealthy, but sometimes its refreshing fizziness is what we crave most. Instead of giving into a can of Coke filled with cheap sugars or even settling for a diet version, try PopdUp for healthier beverages.
PopdUp is a Los Angeles company that makes appearances as a pop-up in local food festivals like the ongoing Smorgasburg LA in Los Angeles or the OC Night Market in Orange County. PopdUp focuses on using local fruits and herbs to blend with raw sugar to create their syrups. These syrups then flavor their brewed teas, which are paired with soda water to create a refreshing and healthier soda.
As a company that focuses on outreach, community building, and involvement, their mission to “fuse health and happiness into an urban lifestyle” is evident in the joy and satisfaction they bring to their customers by serving them a healthy, yet yummy treat in the heart of metropolitan LA.
Inspired by a mixture of Thai and American flavors, their beverages are unique in appearance and taste. From Lychee Butterfly Pea, a pearly white drink that features a whole lychee fruit, to their Ginger Elderflower that is a light burnt orange with pieces of ginger and elderflower, PopdUp has a range of tasty flavors. They even offer specials like a Thai Tea Float made with Thai iced tea, ice cream, coffee jelly, and boba.
On a hot day like the ones Southern California has been enjoying lately, a cold brew soda from PopdUp is the ticket. It is so tasty and refreshing that you will be slurping it down and back in line for another before you know it. Luckily for you, if you purchase your beverage in one of their glass bottles, you can refill it with your next drink at a discounted price, plus you get a neat souvenir to take home – what a deal!
