Victory never tasted sweeter.
It’s been a great season for Lil’ Pop Shop in West Philly. The colorful popsicle store just opened its doors this past May and is already doing double duty, with a mobile cart in addition to the brick-and-mortar location.
Just a month after their opening, Lil’ Pop Shop was featured in Food & Wine’s Best Popsicle online roundup, foreshadowing many great things to come.
The shop was also named a finalist for Best Dessert at the 2012 Philly Vendy Awards, going on to win the category this past Saturday at the finals, right on their home turf in University City.
Owner and popsicle wiz Jeanne Chang wanted to create a dessert for people of all ages and taste palettes to enjoy, bringing an artisan twist to everyone’s childhood favorite. She uses all local and seasonal ingredients, so expect something new and exciting with every visit.
Check Lil’ Pop Shop’s Facebook page and follow them on Twitter for rotating flavor announcements and the location of their mobile store, Lil’ Cart.
There’s still plenty of time this summer to cool down with one of Lil’ Pop Shop’s many delicious treats from their West Philly location or from the Lil’ Cart. Even when it starts to cool down, keep an eye out for some pumpkin and eggnog flavors coming your way!
Congratulations to Lil’ Pop Shop.
