Imagine a store were rows upon rows of handcrafted gelato, sorbetto and froyo on a stick await you in endless flavors, layers and add-ons. Popbar's smooth and tasty ice cream bars are made daily from fresh fruits and natural ingredients imported from Italy. After the initial shock at the variety they offer, you can either pick one pre-made or customize your own myPop with three different kinds of chocolate dips and toppings like nuts, shredded coconut, granola, brownie chunks or biscotti crumbles just to name a few. Kind of takes popsicles to a whole new level, doesn't it?
My mango sorbetto bar was just the refreshing treat I needed to hold off on dinner and cool off in the summer heat. I'm just sad it was done so quickly!
Sidenote: I felt a bit silly standing in the empty store and taking pictures of the popbars until three women came in and started doing the same. "Oh, now I don't feel so bad!" I exclaimed.
"Have you ever seen so many?!" asked one.
"What does it meeeaaaan?" asked the other.
"It's starting to look like a triplelicious!" I added as we all laughed. Then A. and I walked out the shop, popsicles in hand, marveling and smiling at the fact that we all got the crazy rainbow guy reference.
