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.

“Hyppo pop hit the spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

After an afternoon sizzling in the August sun, I was in the mood for something refreshing. I had seen various ice cream and treat shops but I was looking for something a bit less decadent. I turned to my ever-reliant Tripadvisor app and read the great reviews on this Popsicle stand. I decided to see what all the Hyppo hype was about... and I'm glad I did! I'm a big coconut fan and my Popsicle was certainly delicious. It was $3.50 and though I wish I'd gotten a larger pop for my buck, I was still pleasantly surprised by how tasty and original it was. If you're looking for a quick pick me up, this is a great pit stop between attractions.

“Refreshing, delicious and seems healthy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

What a nice treat. Real taste! Wild variety of flavors to choose from. A great stop on a hot day. Wish I could go back for another one. My husband had the cantaloupe and I had the strawberry. They were both amazing.

“Not Worth Trying, Then Again, Taste is Subjective”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This popsicle place has very odd combination, "gourmet" popsicles. We thought it'd be fun to try something different, so we did... not worth it. 2 of us got the wine-flavored ones (champagne something and riesiling something, and 2 of us got fruity ones with herbs: strawberry basil and watermelon mint. The wine ones were okay, but the herb-ed ones were not good at all, we couldn't' even finish them. They told us there was a hint of basil or mint... not the case; they totally overpowered the main flavor. It was like licking a cold basil leaf. However, we met a few people that said they really liked the popsicles... so it's up to you if you want to spend the money on trying them! Personally, I'd rather spend the few dollars on gelato or italian ice... or even just a nice, refreshing, ice-cold drink.
