Viva Pops - Normal Heights
Just walked into Viva Pops on this HOT day and got a DELICIOUS Mexican chocolate popsicle. If you are sweltering right now, this is the place to go. I've had their mango chili, mojito (mint and lime) and strawberry--all amazing. It's right across from Lestats--healthy and fresh and the owners are REALLY nice. I work around the corner from them. What a great addition to the 'hood.
First time I tried the organic strawberry and the mojito pops was at the EarthDay fair in Balboa Park, that day was a scorcher too. It's great just to be able to go to Normal Heights now and enjoy all that icy goodness.
You can also get Viva Pops at the Little Italy Farmers' Market on Saturdays. Very tasty stuff.
My son & I visited last week & stayed with my sister in the neighborhood. We visited Viva Pops every day, no kidding. We tryied three new flavors daily & shared tastes. We got thru almost the whole menu. The best were ruby red grapefruit, nectarine basil & blood orange....yum!
