Our Mission

  • We believe in family values.

    We follow our small business dreams with a blue-collared Midwestern mindset. Hard work, teamwork, and a lot of perseverance.

  • Snacking should be a fun experience.

    Popside Candy is here to shake up your snack routine with a brand new take on your favorite classic flavors.

  • Good candy should be shared with loved ones.

    Sharing is caring. We believe in prioritizing the gift giving experience to share with those who mean the most to us.


Q: What is freeze drying?

A: Freeze drying is a process that removes all moisture from a product through a combination of extreme temperatures and vacuum. This process preserves a product’s nutritional value without the need for additives or preservatives while creating a new, airy texture!


Q: What texture should I expect with freeze dried candy?

A: Popside Candy turns traditionally sticky & chewy treats into a light, airy, and crunchy texture. This new texture delivers a fun and unique melt-in-your-mouth experience.


Q: Who is Popside Candy?

A: We are a family-owned small business located in Michigan that makes delicious freeze dried candy, handcrafted in our fully-licensed commercial facility.


Q: Where can I buy Popside Candy?

A: Our freeze dried candy and treats can be purchased online at popsidecandy.com - all with FREE SHIPPING!

Q: How should I store freeze dried candy?

A: Due to the fragile nature of freeze dried candy, bags should be handled with care and stored out of direct sunlight and high humidity. All Popside Candy bags are resealable and we recommend keeping the bag sealed between snacking sessions for maximum crunch!


Q: How can I support Popside Candy?

A: We sincerely appreciate your support, and we could not do this without our fans, friends, family, and supporters! By shopping our freeze dried candies on popsidecandy.com, visiting our booth at a local event, or even following our journey on our social media, you are directly helping support our family's dream and allowing us to share our passion for freeze dried treats. THANK 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.
