Popbar was founded in New York City in 2010 by Reuben BenJehuda, who has sweet memories of eating gelato with his friends in his hometown of Milan Italy, and Daniel Yaghoubi, who acquired pop-making skills when growing up in Hamburg, Germany. Both brought together their love for authentic, all-natural, gluten-free, low in sugar and fat frozen treats, and created a brand which not only offers forty rotational flavors of popbars, but a customizable experience where each pop is dipped and topped according to the customers' requests.
