Starbucks Adds 3-D Printed Vegan Popsicles to Menu!
Five Starbucks locations in Los Angeles are now selling Dream Pops, a nutrient-dense 3-D printed vegan popsicle line.
Dream Pops made the announcement on Instagram:
“LOS ANGELES 🙌 We’re thrilled to announce our exclusive partnership with Starbucks! All summer long through 10/5, you can find #dreampops at five #starbucks locations in Los Angeles! 🍡☕ Head to one of our select stores to get your daily coffee fix and cool down with a delicious Dream Pop. Tag us in your #DPxStarbucks photo to get featured on our page!”
According to Food Beast, the “new lineup of vegan superfood” includes the brand’s existing flavors plus a new “Chocolate Lion” flavor.
The five locations the frozen treats are currently available at are:
- La Brea and 4th
- Melrose and Stanley
- Third Street Promenade
- Wilshire and Santa Monica
- San Vicente and Barrington
For those interested in understanding the process behind Dream Pops, 3D Print describes it below:
“The desserts are made with a much different, and quite unexpected process too: using 3D printed silicone shapes, made on an Ultimaker 3D printer, the team then has them formed into metal molds. The puree is poured into these molds and then cooled at an accelerated rate with liquid nitrogen.”
As Food Beast notes, this launch “leaves plenty of potential room for the partnership to grow into something that could encompass the entire nation, if not the world.”
