Nitro Pop, like many startups, began with a simple idea. Jason Shah was watching the Food Network after a long day at work and noticed how nitrogen could be used in cooking. An experiment in the kitchen led to a new discovery and Nitro Pop was born in 2013. Jason is the Founder of Uncle Pops and is the inventor of Nitro Pop.
