We rarely pass through St. Augustine without a visit to The Hyppo in the downtown tourist district. They serve up gourmet ice pops and are quite creative with their flavors. Perhaps the most fun is arriving to read the menu as you just never know what flavors they will be offering day to day.
The Hyppo uses fresh local fruit, contain no preservatives, no artificial colors and all their pops are non-GMO.
We have a real hard time finding a favorite. A few of the flavors we have tried include Orange Cream and Blueberry-Pineapple.
The Avocado Cream had a distinct creamy taste with fresh sweetness to the avocado flavor.
The Key Lime Pie had a tart creamy flavor complete with a hint of graham cracker.
The Strawberry Basil had big chunks of both strawberries and basil in it.
The Persimmon flavor was spicy with a hint of sweetness.
The downtown location offers mainly just the gourmet popsicles, but there is also a second location slightly southwest of the city that offers a café menu with sandwiches and salads.
Each pop is only $3.50 so if you really can’t decide on a flavor you can afford to get them both!!
