Victoria businesswoman Dionne Laslo-Baker

Taste-tea treat

Locally-created TeaPops were handed out to eager crowds at the Fairmont Empress Hotel

Victoria businesswoman Dionne Laslo-Baker, creator of DeeBee’s SpecialTea Foods TeaPops, offers a taste to two-year-old Bronwyn Lees-Burden outside the Fairmont Empress Hotel.

Laslo-Baker and her crew handed out 1,400 samples of her locally created TeaPop to passersby on Sunday. The TeaPops, created by Laslo-Baker in her Oak Bay kitchen, are the first certified Non-GMO, organic, kosher, vegan, tea-based frozen stick novelties that are gluten, dairy, nut, and soy free.

TeaPops, made in a custom facility in Esquimalt, is launching in United States and Canada this month after they were picked up by Whole Foods Market Inc. as well as other grocers and retailers.
