An insatiable pregnancy craving for citrus led me to create Poppilu – a healthy lemonade that delivers a strong hit of tart & tangy citrus and Vitamin C without all the syrupy-sweet sugar of traditional lemonade. Along the way I learned about aronia berries and was so enamored by their health benefits, the Midwest farmers who cultivate them and the deep purple color of their juice that I decided to make them part of Poppilu too.

Curious about the name? It seemed only fitting that I name the brand after my daughter Poppy who had given me the craving. Today, she and her big brother Zachary are two of Poppilu’s biggest fans and are learning the hard work of entrepreneurship.
