About Us

Popside Candy is a family-owned company that packs each order with love and enthusiasm for the highest quality product possible.

Our premium freeze dried candy is the result of nearly a decade of expertise with freeze drying products our customers love. 

Our freeze drying journey started way back in 2008 with a freeze dried floral company offering wedding bouquet preservation services for the greater Michigan area. This soon evolved into a small snack company, offering freeze dried fruit chips and ice cream scoops to local markets. 

During the pandemic, we began sending freeze dried candy samples to friends and family and the passionate feedback was incredible. We instantly knew this was the start of something big. 

We value hard work, creativity, and always challenging the status quo. Thank you for considering Popside Candy and we can't wait to share our delicious treats with you!

The Popside Candy Journey


The pandemic brought layoffs to our every day 9-5 day jobs. We decided to make the best out of the situation and get the family business back up and running.

We mastered new recipes, perfected new processes, and engineered the best equipment to deliver a freeze dried candy product unlike any other on the market.
