Hawaii Mom Blog: Banzai Pops

Banzai Pops

Whether it's distance learning, working from home, finding a new job, or converting to a new business model, over the past few months we have all had to find ways to keep busy and adapt to a new way of life because of the pandemic.  

A friend of mine, Kynan, who also happens to be a fellow Pearl City Charger, found himself with a lot more time on his hands due to his job in the tourism industry being affected by the pandemic.  

Like many of us, he began to cook at home more to save money.  I'd see his stories on Instagram, and I was actually quite impressed with his creations - I didn't know he could cook so well!  

He'd whip up all sorts of dishes for his family, often times choosing to make things that he, himself, enjoyed as a kid. 

One day, after making ice cakes for his kids and tinkering around with some recipes, @banzai_pops was born.

Ice cakes were very popular when we were growing up.  I remember getting picked up after school by my aunty, who always had ice cakes ready for my cousin and me.  What a treat!  

And eating one of the Banzai Pops took me back to childhood!  Instead of frozen concoctions in paper cups, Banzai Pops are in freezer bags, making them easily totable and consumable.  Everything about them is so nostalgic.

My kids loved the flavors.  I love how Kynan came up with a wide variety - Pineapple, Strawberry, Blue Vanilla, Lychee, Japanese Grape, and Green River.  

Follow @banzai_pops and DM Kynan with your order!  He has designated days and times for meet-ups, and the Banzai Pops are just $2 each.  They are the perfect anytime treat!
