“Pop” has more than one meaning to the authors of People’s Pops…it means their wares, a sophisticated re-invention of a well-loved but humble American snack, and their retail channel, pop-up shops all over the country that became the talk of the food world. Artisanal frozen treats with flavor pairings like raspberry and basil or peach and bourbon make it easy to see what all the buzz is about! Learn the pop-making fundamentals with Nathalie Jordi, David Carrell and Joel Horowitz’ notes on flavor combinations, simple syrup, alcohol, freezing, unmolding and storage, then discover how seasonal fruits—and even cucumbers, corn, roasted peppers, herbs and alcohol—can make the most delicious ice pops, shaved ice and boozy pops.

PRO: the book gives you one recipe for basic simple syrup and the ratio that you use to add to fruit to make fruity popsicles. --But you could easily get that information online in many different sources.
CON: the 65 recipes are certainly not for your "typical" popsicle eaters. I wasn't buying this for kids, but I'm not enthused about popsicles with parsley and hyssop. I guess "artisan" is a good clue. I've kept the book, but I'm feeling very lukewarm about it. I should have saved my money and just searched "popsicle recipes" online. I made the Strawberry Straight-ups. Very good. If you think you'll like the following combinations, this book is for you: Corn & blackberry, cantaloupe & tarragon, watermelon & parsley, fig jam & yogurt, cucumber & elderflower, strawberries & bitters, blueberry moonshine, peach & jalapeno. These are pop flavors from this book.
