Description: The Hyppo is a gourmet popsicle shop that makes all of its own products using only fresh, natural ingredients. From fresh basil to ripe mangoes to blazing ghost peppers, you're sure to find flavor combinations here that expand the notion of what an ice pop can be. All pops are gluten free and vegetarian, and about half of our selection is dairy free. We use Florida evaporated cane juice to mildly sweeten the fruits and herbs before their flash-freeze onto a small birch stick. On a hot day in the historic district, this is the pinnacle of flavorful refreshment. Open late.

“Great popcicles!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

These are the best popcicles you may ever have. Flavors are weird and delicious! I would have given the place five stars but for the fact that while they were closed in late January and early February they failed to note this on their web site. So we went looking for them and a printed sign said they were closed until whenever they decided to open again in mid February. They did move at this time but the web sited should have noted this. But hopefully, for the spring and summer months, they will be open to keep the hoards of tourists cool. Go, wait in line, and enjoy! But next January, February, beware, they may break your heart!

“Interesting and Different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

My family loves to try new things and although we did not eat at Hyppo we did stop in for some popsicles. WOW!! Who knew that Cilantro and Pineapple would taste that good together...Hyppo's that's who.

“It's just a Popsicle...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

A great variety of flavors - odd, original, and out of the ordinary...well tasting, but in the end it's just a Popsicle. I wasn't floored by the location, experience or the product. Sure, we'll probably stop in again someday, but it doesn't rate as a can't miss with our family.

“We love the Hyppo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

A wonderfully quirky menu of popsicles with unique flavors, and plenty of vegan options, which is great for our family because our son is allergic to dairy and eggs. Highly recommended!
