A few years back, Magnolia bakery in NYC started a cupcake trend that spread across North America: today you can find cupcake shops in most major cities.
Now popsicles seem to be the new hot (or cool) thing in the Big Apple.
A post on iVillage Food gives the lowdown on where to get the best popsicles in town.
People's Pops sells at markets and focuses on fresh and local ingredients. Sounds like my kinda dessert. Even Martha's a fan.
Where do the flavor ideas come from? D: We go to the GreenMarket each week and try to build flavors around the best produce that the farmers brought to market that week.

La Newyorkina's mission is to "Bring modern Mexican ice pops to the streets of New York". I'd love to try their Aguacate (Avocado), Jamaica (Hibiscus) or Mango con Chile (Spicy Mango) flavours.
PopBar (pictured above) is packed with a whole lotta style. You can choose from a dazzling array of taste combos: gelato, sorbetto or frozen yogurt, topped with all kinds of things like pistachios, coconut or biscotti crumbles, and sometimes also dipped in chocolate You can even make up your own combo. Yum!
So... how exactly how long is it until this trend hits Vancouver?? :)
