Fort Collins Popsicles Revolution Artisan Pops

Healthy but Tasty

Picture this: It’s after dinnertime, you have just had an amazing meal, and now you are looking for a sweet treat to top it off. But, you also don’t want to let that workout you did 3 hours ago go to waste. Well look no further than Revolution Artisan Pops! Although other desserts, such as ice cream and cake, are delicious, they are not desserts that you want to be eating every night. However, our popsicles are natural and handmade with no dyes, refined sugars, or preservatives, making them the perfect, healthier go-to treat when you are craving something yummy.

Let’s look at the nutrition facts of our pops compared to other various desserts. One piece of chocolate cake contains a whopping 352 calories, 299 mg of sodium, and 51 g of carbohydrates. However, if you substitute our Nuance Dark Chocolate pop, containing 168 calories, 62 mg of sodium, and 8 g of carbohydrates, you will get the same mouthwatering chocolate-y flavor with much less nutritional guilt. Craving something fruity instead? Then give our Raspberry Hibiscus pop a try! This delicious summer flavor contains no fat OR cholesterol. Compared to Black Raspberry Ice Cream, which has 8 g of fat and 30 mg of cholesterol, you are getting a much healthier (and tastier) deal.

The Nuance Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Hibiscus pops are just two out of the 30+ flavors we have created at Revolution Artisan Pops – we have options for everyone! We strive to make our popsicles as healthy as possible so that you can treat your taste buds without being concerned about lapsing into a carbs/sugar high. All of our handmade flavors present the same satisfying taste as traditional desserts, but prove to be the healthier option. We also support other Colorado businesses by using as many local ingredients as possible- the Nuance Dark Chocolate uses cocoa powder from Fort Collin’s finest chocolatier, and the Raspberry Hibiscus uses tea from Happy Lucky’s Tea House! So next time you are craving a flavorsome snack to satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further than Revolution Artisan Pops, located at 208 S College Ave. Believe us; you will not be disappointed!

Fort Collins Brewers Olympics beer cup

Brewer’s Olympics- yay beer!

Last weekend, we served pops during the Fort Collins Beer Week Brewers Olympics! It was so much fun to watch the different breweries compete in the various events, which ranged from tug of war to a stylish entrance competition.

The obstacle course was a lot of fun to watch (you can see our tent in the background):

We had a blast serving up tasty pops, watching the competition, and of course, drinking some beer. We even got to take home some of these cool cups!

Fiesta! Chef Challenge for Children

This Saturday, we’re super excited to be hosting Sunchoke Fine Dining at the second annual Chef Challenge for Children, a fundraiser benefiting La Familia Center in Fort Collins!

Revolution Artisan Pops La Familia Fiesta Chef Challenge for Children

If you’ve never head of the event before, it’s pretty cool: Chefs will create unique dishes that people sample as they travel through Old Town, Fort Collins. People vote on the dishes they like best, and later, the winning chefs are announced at an awesome party with live music, auctions, and dancing! Best part is that the event is to benefit the La Familia Center, which is a multicultural, bilingual early childhood center dedicating to helping all families.

So if you’re looking for something to do this Saturday, swing by our store and try Sunchoke dining’s dish along with your favorite pop!

Pop dates

If you’re looking for a romantic, easy, inexpensive date idea, have a pop date! Best part is, you get to try two flavors- even if your date doesn’t want you to.

The artisan pops shown here are the new Rhubarb Jasmine and the Cucumber Lime, both great options for summer! The Rhubarb is made with fresh rhubarb, which is just starting to come into season in Colorado! The Cucumber Lime is super refreshing, it kind of makes you feel like you’re at the spa. Stop by and try both of these summer favorites with your pop date!

Welcome, Sara!

We’d like to introduce you to the newest member of the Revolution Team! This is Sara, she’ll be our marketing intern for the summer. She created this website, but she’ll also be posting on all of our social media this summer, including the blog! So check out our Facebook and Instagram to see what she’s up to!
