You gotta love a place whose motto is ‘Eat Fruit’, and I do
I remember quite well the first time I wandered into to the Hyppo on Saint George Street. “$3.50 for a popsicle!”, I exclaimed, “there is no way I am spending that much on a popsicle”. But the longer I tarried in front of the quietly humming banks of glass-topped freezers, seeing row after row of neatly stacked popsicles, my determination to walk about vanished…so I plunked down my money for a Coconut gourmet popsicle. Dipped in chocolate. I watched as the girl behind the counter unwrapped, dunked, and rewrapped my pop and handed it to me with all the love and care of a maternity nurse handing over a newborn.
I took a bite and was immediately smitten. Now when friends come to town to visit, the Hyppo is one of the first places I take them. I’m sure it’s funny to watch me show them the place like I own it, but that’s how you feel about a Hyppo Pop.
Interesting Anecdote: Hyppo had an anniversary celebration last year of being in business for 5 years. To give back, they were handing out their very first pop for free. I was very excited to go get one until I realized that the first flavor they ever had was Cucumber Jalapeno. “Hmm”, I thought, “so much for that”. But my daughter Kelsey, who is so much braver than I am, insisted we get one and guess what?
Yeah, it was awesome.
