About Us

The Paekākāriki Pops story begins many years ago when Chrissy and Amy met at high school when they were 13 years old. While living in Melbourne, Chrissy began a part-time business making real fruit iceblocks. Fast-forward a few years and a move back to New Zealand, they decided to try something similar for a local market. The response was fantastic - and so Paekākāriki Pops was born!

After a number of successful years it was time to hangup the aprons.
Michelle & Levi purchased the business in February 2024 and are continuing with the tradition of home deliveries and putting smiles on faces at festivals and events up and down the coast.

Our pops are all handmade and are bursting with real fruit, with as much locally sourced and organic fruit as possible. Containing no dairy products and less sugar than a normal iceblock, our pops are the perfect tasty treat for a hot summer day!

Our flavours change depending on what seasonal fruit is available, but can include delicious combinations such as Raspberry Lemonade, Avocado & Lime, Strawberry & Kiwi, Pineapple Coconut & Lime, Roasted Plum and Coconut Yoghurt, Orange & Raspberry, and Lime Lemongrass & Ginger. We also strongly believe in being an eco-friendly and ethical business, and use completely compostable and biodegradable packaging.

We attend local events and festivals, and also provide catering, home delivery and are stocked in a number of stores. Please get in touch to discuss your needs - we’d love to hear from you!
