Popbar has been selling gelato, sorbet and frozen yogurt on a stick ("popbars") since mid-May, when Manhattan's popsicle craze was at its height. Popologists handcraft small batches of 24 popbars at a time using fresh, natural ingredients- hormone-free milk, real fruit (their sign claims "a lot of real fruit"), and other "basic gelato ingredients imported directly from Italy". A wide variety of flavors including mandarin, coffee, gianduja, and strawberry are rolled in nuts or coconut and dipped in (half or whole) or drizzled with dark, milk, or white chocolate. I opted for a banana popgelato rolled in pistachios and half-dipped in milk chocolate- creamy, crunchy goodness on a stick.
The small storefront is located on the corner of Carmine and 6th Avenue
Colorful popbars are handmade daily and on display for customers
