Locally Sourced Pecans Make the Difference

Sourced local, made local, for locals” is our goal at Steel City Pops.  We want to work with local providers to source the ingredients for our pops so that each one is made from the best ingredients available. Two of our favorite fall flavors, Butter Pecan and Carrot Cake, contain salted, roasted pecans from local providers.
