Remember the absolute thrill of tearing after the ice cream man as a child to demand a cartoon-character-shaped treat and paying for it entirely in quarters? Ordering a Seattle Pop brings me the exact same joy, except this treat is made from high quality, all-natural ingredients. And it costs four dollars (16 quarters to be exact).
Don’t let the price deter you. In my opinion a Seattle Pop is one of the best sweet snacks you can find in the city, and I will often go out of my way to track one down. Not only do they have an adorable Wallingford location, but you can also find them at many of the neighborhood farmers markets. (Like the Ballard Year-Round Market!)
They offer two categories of ice pops: Creamy and Fruity. The Creamy pops are all milk based, and offer rich flavors like Chocolate Fudge, Cinnamon Horchata and Coconut Cream. The Fruity pops are 100 percent vegan, and rotate through fresh seasonal flavors like Strawberry, Blackberry Ginger and Peach.
I have a personal goal of trying every single flavor, and therefore look for every excuse to return to Seattle Pops. Pro tip: if you visit their brick and mortar location, you can have your pop dipped in dark, milk or white chocolate. The Kona Coffee pop with dark chocolate dip? Heavenly.
