Modern Pop was founded in Laguna Beach, CA by CEO / Super Mom Julie Podolec and Husband Brad Podolec. The idea originated after Julie and Brad failed at several attempts to find a frozen fruit bar they felt comfortable giving their teething infant. Options fell short. They skimped on fruit, had too much sugar, added juices, vegetable stabilizers, and difficult to pronounce ingredients. It was time for the old classic to evolve, and they decided that there was no better place for this to take root than in Southern California.
From Humble Beginnings selling the Modern Pop Bars out of a cart on hot Laguna Beach summer days, today the brand has a national grocery presence and growing.
