Popshop is the brainchild of Emily Zaiden, a Los Angeles local who's always loved playing with frozen dessert flavors. After overwhelmingly positive response to her mojito and lemon ginger flavors from friends at a 2008 birthday party, she started experimenting with ethnic-infused palattes, using only fresh, farmer's market ingredients to make her gourmet, vegan, preservative-free popsicles. (Read the full LAist profile on her here.)
She has a booth each week at the Studio City Farmer's Market on Sundays (still my favorite farmer's market around town. I need to find something comparably great in my neighborhood) and can also arrange for special order deliveries ($48 for 24 pops, often including delivery).
I'm thinking an avocado vanilla, nectarine almond, or mango lime popsicle sounds divine for a hot afternoon wedding. Or for the late night post-alcohol, mid-dance recovery break. Or for this Sunday afternoon, when it's 90 degrees out and I just want something delicious.
