For a few months now I've been thinking of making and selling healthier than most (as healthy as I can possibly make them) popsicles here in Rio on the beach. Finally I got a kick up the behind from some friends (who are opening a cafe next week, La Furgoneta, most exciting) when they decided one day to advertise their cafe on the beach by selling fresh juices.
Now I'm 3 weekends of selling in- 3 successes and 1 fail (wrong target market, everyone was looking for popsicles with alcohol in them, I stashed my bag and got on the drinking band wagon with them instead!) and one private order of 18 popsicles!
The wee enterprise is called Palitos (because in português it means little wooden stick and Olive Oyl, Popeye, in português is called Olivia Palito) and you can find out more about it here. Some teaser pictures below and one snapped of me (this ones for my Dad, Hi Dad!) by a lovely lady last weekend right after I'd sold out.
