Ah, Popworks. This popsicle shop has so many options. There are fruity and creamy flavors, and you can even get a popsicle dipped or drizzled with chocolate. Try a classic strawberry or blueberry pop or a fun flavor like key lime pie or espresso.
Fun fact: the espresso pop is made with Spencer’s Coffee.
