Allen Martin, a.k.a. Sir Mixalot, packages small-run flavors on site at Crystal Fresh. He works in a fully approved lab that allows packaging of flavors that don’t meet the minimum run size of more popular flavors. Having this flexibility lets us provide regional flavorites across the U.S. and around the world.
