Right before their launch in May 2012, my wife Marcela and I were invited to HipPOPs’ micro-creamery. This is where the gelato pops are made daily in small handcrafted batches. HipPOPs is the creation of Anthony Fellows. After speaking to him, in no time, you realize how passionate he is about putting out the best-tasting pops you’ve ever had with the highest quality ingredients available.
HipPOPS Handcrafted Gelato Bars truck serves up all-natural, gluten-free, ORB Kosher Certified gelato on a stick. The pops are available in various flavors, including banana, Mexican chocolate chipotle, and vanilla bean. The HipPOPs truck is not limited to only gelato bars, but sorbet and frozen yogurt pops that can be had in hundreds of combinations.
You start with the HipPOP of your choice, then add a dipping flavor and a topping or Poppings as they refer to them.
THE LIFE OF A HipPOPS POP
I can’t heap enough praise on The Tony, a vanilla bean gelato pop dipped in Belgian milk chocolate then rolled in salted crushed pretzel pieces. At the end of the day, it’s all up to you. You make your creation to your liking so you can’t lose.
HipPOPs has been an integral part of the Miami Food Truck scene since its launch. Anthony recently launched another truck in the Denver, Colorado area. They probably don’t know what just hit them, which is exciting news for their foodie community.
