Are you feeling the heat yet? I know I am, and that glorious humidity that often comes with it here in NYC. Wouldn’t be much fun if we couldn’t escape to the awesome parks, or the beaches…or if we didn’t have an almost endless supply of frozen treats around the city to cool us off.
I’m not talking about the questionable Mr. Frosty trucks my kids (unfortunately) gravitate to, I am talking about treats that are not only much better for you, but also better made.
One such delight is the Popbar, a gelato on a stick made of all-natural ingredients. Located on 5 Carmine St. and 6th Ave., this small shop is a colorful display of all sorts of gelatos on a stick flavors. These Kosher certified, gluten- and preservative-free icy treats come in flavors such as hazelnut, coffee, coconut, vanilla, or pistachio, just to name a few. You can have them dipped in chocolate, or nuts, or a variety of other coatings.
They also serve PopSorbettos and YogurtPops, and have been known to help cater a few kid’s birthday parties.
My absolute favorite is this awesome creation right here:
Coffee gelato bar dipped in chocolate and pistachio with nuts. YUM-MY.
So, if you’re in the West Village, and are looking for a cold treat that won’t slow you down, head on over to Popbar…just brace yourself, for the selection process can be long, but worth it.
