The offerings from the West Village's Popbar combine the best qualities of gelato—its dense creaminess and purity of flavor—with the self-contained convenience of a popsicle. Sorbet pops, also available, hew closer to the standard fruit ice flavor normally associated with frozen treats. Pops range from $3.99 to $4.99 in price, and a variety of "poppings," such as granola and chopped pistachios, are available, as are white, milk, and dark chocolate dips. We tried Popbar's two new spring flavors: peanut butter gelato and kiwi sorbet.
Popbar, the gelato-on-a-pop shop on Bleecker Street, has expanded their non-frozen selections. They already sell one winter friendly product, a hot chocolate on a stick. Now, they have a second—Waffle Pops—and they're damn good too.
