Description: The Hyppo is a gourmet popsicle shop that makes all of its own products using only fresh, natural ingredients. From fresh basil to ripe mangoes to blazing ghost peppers, you're sure to find flavor combinations here that expand the notion of what an ice pop can be. All pops are gluten free and vegetarian, and about half of our selection is dairy free. We use Florida evaporated cane juice to mildly sweeten the fruits and herbs before their flash-freeze onto a small birch stick. On a hot day in the historic district, this is the pinnacle of flavorful refreshment. Open late.

We stopped by here on our way out of St. Augustine, and it was decent. It's about $3.50 for a popsicle. I got watermelon and I've definitely had better. It wasn't very satisfying, a water bottle would have done me more good.

I was thoroughly impressed by the selection of gourmet pops this place had to offer! I enjoyed a coconut popsicle dipped in a milk chocolate shell...just DELICIOUS! It's the perfect place to cool off after strolling along the streets of St. Augustine on a scorching hot day. I've made my mind up to try out a new flavor or two... More

Dying. From. Heat. This was a lifesaver for me today! Left the nearby fort in a vapor and chose Bourbon Peach, a saving grace. Watermelon Chia was the runner up. Many sophisticated flavor pairings. Very informative staff. Pops with dairy were clearly marked. And for what it's worth, it did not melt as quickly as I thought it would, even... More

We stopped into the Hyppo for a cooling popsicle. I had the Sangria Plum and the other party had the peach. Both were refreshing and quite different...in a good way! There were at least a dozen different flavors to choose from. Definitely worth a try!

This is not a restaurant; this little place sells popsicles only but not any popsicle but the most tasty and creative popsicles I have ever seen and tasted! I understand they make their own popsicles in St. Augustine. The variety is extensive, there are popsicles that contain dairy and some that don't and they are easy to identify. The first... More

Delicious and fresh! The clerks are the friendliest people around, and are eager to help make choices (which is hard). This is an exciting new store I will definitely be going back to often! A little expensive. :)

I've had the pineapple-cllantro, strawberry-basil, and pink grapefruit. I'll definitely go back for more! All are made with fresh fruit and herbs. So refreshing. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

We were walking down one of the side streets and it was blazing hot! We saw a sign for gourmet Popsicles...Neat, so we stopped in! The staff was nice and helpful, flavors were different. We tried the jackfruit and the strawberry/basil popsicles, they were pretty good. It's something we can say we did, but not something we would call to... More

Every time we visit St. Augustine, we get gourmet Popsicles from The Hyppo! They have so many varieties to chose from, so I always have a hard time picking one. They only use fresh fruit and there are some interesting combinations. I had Pink Grapefruit, which was so refreshing! My kids had Key Lime pie and Strawberry/Datil. I visited their... More

Nice treat when walking around the historic downtown area. Drop in and eat a yummy popsicle. I love the key lime popsicle.
