Normally I am an old fashioned kind of girl; I put mustard on my hot dog and ketchup on my fries. Today however, I think the old fashioned ways need to be updated. Gone are the days of summer and ice cream being synonymous. I declare this summer the summer of gelato! More specifically, this is the summer of HipPops handcrafted gelato bars!
HipPops is a festively decorated truck that just recently starting gracing the streets of South Florida with its presence. In my opinion they got here in the nick of time! Walk up to this truck and you are transported back to a time when you could barely see over the counter at the ice cream shop.
Take a gander at the days’ offerings and prepare to indulge. But wait! Before you get your Pop on, you get to dip your bar in one of their chocolate sauces and roll it in the crushed nuts, pretzel pieces or other tasty treats they have. Are you drooling yet?!
Now that you have seen my Cappuccino bar dipped in dark chocolate and rolled in crushed pecans I bet you are! BOOM! It was an explosion of chocolate, coffee and saltiness in my mouth. ‘Nough said!
Next up! A bar of awesome! Ok, it was Pistachio gelato covered in milk chocolate and rolled in crushed pretzels but clearly that is awesome! A mild touch of sweetness paired with the delicious salt of pretzels.
I know, I know. You have to stop reading and find out where the HipPOPs truck is going to be next – just go. But remember, HipPOPs has awesomeness written all over it so find them fast!
