Morelia Gourmet Paletas
The family behind Morelia Gourmet Paletas has opened its first Broward locale in Hollywood, offering a wide variety of Mexican popsicles. The concept is as simple as picking your popsicle flavor (such as Sicilian pistachio or pineapple mint) then choosing your dipping flavor (think dark chocolate, caramel, and cookie butter) and toppings (i.e. peanuts, sprinkles, and graham crackers, to name a few). Signature add-ons include a riff on s’mores, complete with torched marshmallow fluff. Morelia has more than 100 combinations to choose from, so let your imagination run wild.
The PopCycle Bar
What began as a couple selling popsicles out of a tricycle on the boardwalk in St. Maarten has evolved into The PopCycle Bar. Forced to relocate to South Florida following Hurricane Irma, Amanda and Guillaume Millot-Ferrier continued their business of blending fresh fruits and turning them into gourmet pops in kid-friendly and adult-only variations. Their creative concoctions range from the Popstafari (strawberry, mango, kiwi) to the CBD-infused Vanilla Matcha and the alcoholic Pineapple Chili Lime Margarita, made without additives. The pops are sold online and at local haunts like Kush in Wynwood. You can even rent The PopCycle tricycle for special occasions.
