Cebu is really getting to be so much more exciting with many interesting new brands and concepts popping up everywhere. One of these concepts that we especially love is Tipsy Pops – a fun adult twist to a childhood classic. It is a grownup version of the Popsicle that has the flavors of iconic cocktails, made with premium alcohol, fresh fruits and natural ingredients. The Popsicles are also paired with refreshing slush with the yummiest tropical flavors.
Tipsy Pops was born in March 2015 when a group of friends who loved alcohol (and getting tipsy!) got together and decided it was a great idea. They realized that there wasn’t really a concept like it in Cebu. These four friends were Clarence ( in charge of Research & Development, Operations and Business Development), Talia Diago (Business Development and Operations), Bea Osmeña (Finance and Research&Development) and Sheryl Desquitado (Social Media Manager and Data Analyst). All four spent months developing and testing the product, and well getting tipsy while they were at it. Sounds like fun right? That is the very essence of Tipsy Pops - it is a fun and lickable delight!
Tipsy Pops is the perfect answer for hot days or the alcohol lover in you. This is definitely the best alcoholic pops concept in Cebu City. Find out more about these alcoholic pops below.
