The shop is located on 1686B Danforth Ave and is open Wednesday to Saturday from 11:30 am until 6 pm. While many of the pops are made with real booze, the alcohol content is so low they are considered non-alcoholic.
However, the shop also offers signature poptails, which involve placing the frozen treat in your mixed drink-a delicious invention. These cool boozy treats often pop up at local breweries and bars in the city as well, so keep an eye on their social media accounts to see when you can get a fancy poptail of your own.
This locally owned business is constantly rotating flavours in and out. There are always a number of kid-friendly options as well such as vanilla bean, harvest fudge, strawberry milkshake, and more. The best part? These frozen treats are made with all-natural ingredients. You can always check their website to see what flavours are currently available.
