Those who are close to me know that I like things that are well made. That applies to living goods, clothing, kitchenware, and of course, FOOD! I recently made one of the better discoveries that I have made in a very long time. Walking along the brick-paved streets of St. Augustine, I came across a sign that said, “Fresh, Local, and Natural.” I was so intrigued that I just had to stop in to this little shop that specialized in popsicles. Yes, popsicles. I walked in, and I saw tempting flavor combinations such as Datil Strawberry, Key Lime, Riesling Pear, and Champagne Mango. I asked the attendant what his favorite was, and without hesitation, he said “Strawberry-Basil.” So that’s what I tried. What I experienced was the most delicious flavor I have ever tasted in a popsicle, and by far, the absolute best texture too. As I got ready to pay, I looked down and saw that the shop takes payment with square. Way cool. This place won mega kudos for not only being cool, but also delivering a quality product. Check them out if you are in St. Augustine. Here’s their website: www.thehyppo.com.
