Fiskar is offering a new banana popsicle, but not for the money.
The company has raised a new round of funding led by CapitalG, a company that specializes in early-stage funding.
Fiskal raised $1.1 million in a Series A round led by SV Angel, which is a VC firm.
“This is an entirely new opportunity to bring new product to market and bring a high-end, delicious, fun and creative flavor to the market,” Fiskur CEO Jody Chastain said in a statement.
“We believe we have a proven track record with creating and delivering the highest quality, authentic banana flavor that has been a cornerstone of our brand for more than 15 years.”
Fisks brand of banana popsicles is one of the most popular in the country.
The brand, founded in the late 1990s, has been known for its flavors like strawberry, blackberry, orange and blackcurrant.
The latest banana popsiicle, which has not yet been named, comes in flavors like banana, blueberry, peach and strawberry.
Fiske’s Banana Pop-A-Thon is another popular brand of bananas, which Fisku is not currently selling.
The first banana popsies launched in 2009, but the company is also selling Fiskus Banana Popa-A.
“Our goal with Fiskals banana pops is to create a new category of popsicle that will satisfy all tastes and the most discriminating consumer,” Fiskel said in the statement.
The new funding round will help Fiskums brand reach more consumers.
“Fiskar’s banana pops are the best of the best,” Fisch said.
“It’s been a long journey to get here and we’re so excited to be able to share it with you.”
Fisch also mentioned Fiskers banana popsie was the second-most popular banana pops flavor, behind only the strawberry.
“Banana popsicles have been one of our core brands for a long time,” he said.
