As the brutal Florida heat kicks into full gear for summer, you might find yourself craving a cool, refreshing snack. Look no further than The Hyppo, the ultimate gourmet ice pop shop specializing in over 450 unusual yet remarkable flavors sure to strike a chord with any palette, and that “crafts foods with integrity and serves them up with their one-of-a-kind blend of welcome and whimsy.”

Flavor selections vary with the seasons to ensure the freshest and ripest of fruits and vegetables. For those seeking a more classic choice, The Hyppo provides traditional flavors such as strawberry, lime, orange, chocolate and vanilla to name just a handful, as well as its fair share of creative flavors outside the box–ice box, that is–for adventurous taste buds. Avocado dark chocolate, blackberry goat cheese, cantaloupe chili, cranberry habanero, watermelon jalapeño margarita, sweet potato crunch and sweet corn serve as just a few from the seemingly endless list.

The Hyppo also does an extraordinary job of incorporating spice as a cardinal ingredient in several of the pops; cherry clove, carrot mango cayenne, starfruit basil and coconut curry cashew all take full advantage of their prominent spice bases to produce compelling flavors. The pops sell for $4 each, and customers can pay an additional dollar to have theirs dipped in a chocolate coating.

Do your tongue a favor and “pop” in for a sweet­ (or savory) time after a trip to Lido Beach or a stroll around the Circle.
