There’s nothing ingenious about making a Popsicle—get a mold, pour flavored water into the mold, add a stick, freeze, and enjoy. A new company called Dream Pops, however, is aiming to up the ante on the classic icy treat by creating Popsicles made using superfoods and 3-D printing. Cofounded by David Marx, David Greenfeld, and David Cohen, along with help from
three-Michelin-star chef Juan Amador, the team at Dream Pops creates its desserts by using an Ultimaker to 3-D print silicone shapes that are then made into metal molds. Finally, the Popsicle puree (which is organic, gluten-free, mostly vegan and made with ingredients like coconut palm sugar, tapioca, agave, and baobab) is added, cooled with liquid nitrogen, and ready to serve.
