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.

“OMG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

I have no idea how they make these Popsicles, but you must try one. If you don't you are missing out on an experience of a lifetime. The favors are fantastic, rich and sweet, but not rich and sweet at the same time. There is more than one location, so you are going to pass one somewhere, just don't miss it!!

“Refreshing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

I never thought there could be so many different flavors for such a simple treat. I had the pear sangria and my husband had some crazy strawberry flavor. If you want, you can have them dipped in chocolate. There are multiple locations and it's nice to stop in and grab something unique and refreshing. The decor was simple and cute. The service was average.... nothing to get too excited about, but it is a place where you buy popcicles so my expectations weren't that high anyway.

“Amazing! Skip ice cream shops and don't miss this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Our family loved these popsicles! They're more like frozen smoothies on a stick than watery popsicles. We also loved that they had dairy free options for our son.

“Sweet little popsicles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Stopped in for a popsicle, and we were NOT disappointed! My son and I each had watermelon, which had real fruit- I kept thinking I would have to spit out seeds! My mom had a to die for coconut, creamy with coconut bits. Over $3.00 a piece is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for- truly delectable on a hot Florida day, and not at all your grocery store twin-pop.
