I Love Viva Pops

You might of seen the cute cart filled with ice cold Viva Pops at local farmers markets around town but did you know that they have a store in Normal Heights that you can pop into anytime? I served these pops the other night for dessert and they were a huge hit. The unique flavors like salted caramel, lavender rose, and strawberry basil were fought over and shared.
Owner Lisa Altmann makes some out-of-this-world-pops and has one store front location. You can also find them at the Little Italy Farmers Market every Saturday from 9:30am-1:30pm, serving up ice cold pops from their adorable ice cream cart.
All of the fruits and herbs used are organic and come from local farms around San Diego. The pop flavors are changing with the seasons and are inspired by what local farmers are growing. There are no additives or preservatives added to keep the flavors in the pops as true and natural as possible.
The pops sell for $2.50-$2.25. You can also rent out a cart for your next event which is such an awesome idea! Pool Party Anyone?
The flavors are categorized by Fruit Based Vegan, Dairy Based and Sugar Free w/ organic agave (also vegan).I had the hardest time deciding which flavors to get. They all are so interesting and inviting.
Oh and don't fret about these pops melting if you have to drive far. Viva Pops provides a container with ice packs to keep the pops cold.
Some of the flavors I purchased were: Strawberry Basil, Chili Mango, Lavender Rose, Lavender Lemonade, Key Lime Pie, Mexican Chocolate, Orange Cream, and Salted Caramel which I think was the hit of the evening! All unique in flavor and all divine.
If you are looking to cool down from the summer heat get yourself a Viva Pop.
So damn cool.
