That’s kinda the abbreviated version of our story…

For 70+ years,
we’ve been

Celebrating them. Gathering for good times around them. And growing them fresh on our farm. We’ve developed our business, our friends and our families around the idea that if fruit can be good, and fresh, and fun, it should be—a mantra that’s served us well ever since we thought it up.

So when it came time for our next beverage, we asked ourselves: “what do we want to drink?” What could we make that would support both a work day, and a play day? It had to be tasty. Something with balance. Something with good stuff in it, that wasn’t so good we had to pinch our noses to get it down.

On one hand, you’ve got the juicy, delicious fruit flavors of the farm—sorta like a soda. And on the other hand, the gut-helping benefits of probiotics (good bacteria) – sorta like a healthy tonic.
The two come together to create what we call a probi-tonic.





Sorta Pop just makes you feel good. When it’s 3pm and you need a pick-me-up, it can help. Or maybe you’re looking to offset a few slices of pizza you had for lunch. Or you just want to start the day on the right foot. When you do one good thing for yourself, the next good thing comes a little easier. It’s our hope and our mission to be a daily dose of good, for those hoping to be their greatest.

That kinda covers it! Enjoy one if you’ve got one, share one if you got two—cheers!

Team Sorta


Bacteria is sometimes viewed in a negative light, however, you have two kinds of bacteria constantly in and on your body — good bacteria and bad bacteria. Probiotics are made up of good bacteria that help keep your body healthy and working well. 

Good bacteria like probiotics also:

  • Help your body digest food
  • Keep bad bacteria from getting out of control and making you sick
  • Support immune function and controlling inflammation
  • Help support the cells that line your gut to prevent bad bacteria that you may have consumed (through food or drinks) from entering your blood
  • Breakdown and absorb medications
Sorta Pop probiotic soda is a non-alcoholic bubbly beverage alternative made with better-for-you ingredients. What separates SP from just classic sparkling flavored water and sparkling juices is the addition of a gut supporting ingredient called probiotics.

Sorta Pop is just sorta getting started! We are doing a “soft” rollout with our 3 flavors making it available in premium markets and grocers in Michigan and Ohio only, with a Sorta Finder (Sorta Pop locator app by zip code) launching in February! We have big plans to get Sorta Pop in chain grocers to make easier for you to find, in March!

We wanted to keep the ingredient list simple and only with ingredients our team could pronounce. Sparkling filtered water, real fruit, natural flavoring, bacillus SP (probiotics) and monk fruit make up the ingredients. Monk fruit gets its sweetness from natural compounds called mogrosides. It’s generally safe for those with diabetes because it doesn’t increase blood sugars

The liquid pioneers at Blake’s Hard Cider, located on Blake Farms in Armada, MI wanted to mix up something non-alcoholic for those long days of work in the sun, in the cider mill, and in the brewery. As fruit growers and experts, a carbonated better-for-you fruited soda was a natural step out of alcohol for us!
