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.

Imaginative, natural flavor combinations don't make it easy to decide. At $3.50 a pop, you might hesitate, but go for it anyway. You'll be glad you did.

The employees are very helpful in describing the flavors. This is quite important as some of the flavors are interesting and bold combinations.

what a wonderful cold treat on a hot day! Not a single bad flavor. Some are more adventurous that I would try, but the coconut, Presley (banana and PB), mango, and key lime were delicious.

Awesome spot to stop and cool off while taking a stroll in town under the hot sun. All kinds of cool flavors to choose from too!

Eating one of the all natural Popsicles is a great way to get out of the heat. The store is nice and cool. The employees were friendly and helpful answering any questions. The coconut pop was very good with most of the fruit settling on the bottom part (make sure you eat it all). The piña colada was extremely refreshing.... More

I'm pretty picky, but I found the dreamsicle to be my absolute favorite treat! My wife had a pear and something flavor and really liked it. Guy behind the counter was super helpful and very friendly! Don't miss this gem!
