I don’t usually cover food on this blog but I couldn’t resist sharing the cleverly named HipPOPs brand of handcrafted frozen desserts, including gelato bars, sorbet, and frozen yogurt (Disclaimer: Unfortunately I have not tasted the desserts so I can’t vouch for the flavor). Introduced recently into the Florida market, HipPOP founder Anthony Fellows hopes to eventually franchise the concept. At the core of HipPOPs are natural, gluten-free, kosher frozen pops on a stick that are made from small, handcrafted batches at the company’s micro-creamery in Dania Beach, Florida.
While I have not had a chance to actually taste the pops, I like the aesthetic of the truck and the pops, particularly how the dip doesn’t cover the entire pop so that you can peek at the flavor beneath. HipPOPs makes more than 100 flavors, 15 to 20 of which are featured daily on their truck. Customers choose from gelato, sorbet, or frozen yogurt, and three kinds of premium signature Belgian chocolate dips and several crushed-nut “poppings”, including finely crushed pistachios, almonds, hazelnuts, pecans.
