Description: The Hyppo is a gourmet popsicle shop that makes all of its own products...
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.

Are Popsicle Shops the new "it thing"? If so I think they should Franchise this!

Unbelievable assortment. Great Unique flavors to choose from. Reasonable prices. Mine was a little hard to bite through. almost too frozen. Strawberry basil, Pomegranate, plum mint . I cannot even remember but it is a nice change from a fattening feel guilty ice cream cone. This place must do... read more

A perfect treat for a warm afternoon. So many flavors it was hard to choose, but the blackberry clove was a great one. The gentleman working was very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

We have been to the old city several times but were never tempted to try a “popsicle” shop however after several people telling us about Hyppo we broke down. All I can say is “Why did I wait so long”, this is NOT TO BE MISSED. Words cannot explain the goodness that you will experience, a little pricey but worth... More

We went back again this year for spring break and the kids really like it, but I think the adults loved it even more. The blackberry clove and coconut avocado are HIGHLY recommended. I wish we had these up in the midwest. They are pricey but the quality and unique tastes are totally worth it!

A regular stop for me on annual pilgrimages to St. Augustine. Very unique twist on flavors, don't be scared, they always seem to feature a few for the more mundane palate. I've never been disappointing by any flavor that I've tried, my first attempt was avocado. Most recently I had the watermelon-hibiscus, a very refreshing treat on a hot, sunny... More

Even though summer isn't here it was heavenly walking in the warm spring weather through adorable St.Augustine streets with a delicious Popsicle. Everyone who got one loved their flavors. Worth the extra couple bucks for a healthy, cool treat.
