Yesterday morning, Cold Spring got even more amazing when my friend Lynn Miller and her lovely husband Greg opened The Pop Shop on Main Street. Anne and I walked down there this morning to wish them well and partake of their fantastic foodstuffs.
Lynn and Greg are the creators of Go-Go Pops, the most delicious frozen fruit pop you can possibly imagine. The pops are all natural and handmade right here in Cold Spring. Lynn and Greg use local fruit when possible and use environmentally sound practices at every level of their production and packaging processes. But all that virtue would be for naught if the pops weren't scrumptious. Here are some of their mouthwatering flavors:
Wild Blueberry-Lemon (my favorite)
Peaches & Cream
Power Pops (made with Go-Go Boosters like protein, ginseng, and bee pollen)
I first tasted a Go-Go Pop at Cold Spring's Farmers Market a couple of years ago. Since then, it's a rare week that goes by without our indulging in a treat from the Millers' stand. Besides the Pops, Lynn makes terrific baked goods like Cheddar-Dill Scones, Raspberry-Cream Cheese Breakfast Pastries, and (my favorite) Lemon-Iced Gingerbread Cupcakes. They also specialize in all kinds of organic, fair-trade coffee.
And now I don't have to wait for Saturdays for a Go-Go fix! Come on over, friends, and I'll treat you to the best frozen treat you've ever put in your mouth.
