Dessert: People’s Pops

Eating Out




Located at the Brooklyn Flea, People’s Pops offers hand-made shave ice and ice pops in summer-ready flavors.  The weather was balmy, humid and asking for a pop, so I was happy to oblige.  We had several flavor options:

I also had to decide if I was in the mood for a pop or shave ice – tough decisions I face every day, I know.  The shave ice had the perk of being hand-shaved to order:

…but the cantaloupe and tarragon pop was calling my name.

The cantaloupe pop was sweet and juicy, with tiny chunks of cantaloupe embedded in the pop body and just the tiniest hint of tarragon.  The ice pop was a little too sweet for my taste; however, my eating buddy gobbled it up – so it’s a matter of personal preference.

Super sweet pops in refreshing flavors.

    Wow, those look yummy! I don't like overly-sweet things, either, but my fiance loves going into sugar-shock. Totally a matter of personal preference!

    I think I missed these. I haven't been to the Flea very much this summer. I'll have to check them out while it's still warm.

    Yum. I don't like things that are too sweet, but I wouldn't be able to resist the cantaloupe pop either! 🙂

    p.s. I love your blog & wished I lived in NYC so that I could try all of these places! Take a trip to Chicago and eat your way across the city, kay?? 🙂

    Okay, here's the thing: I live in Dallas, and it would have been nice of you to post these awesome-looking things sometime before we had months on end of 100-degree plus weather. Oh, mind you, I'll still be making them, but we might need to talk about your timing …
