In collaboration with Adult Swim, King of Pops has released a Rick and Morty "Pickle Rick" pop just in time for music festival season. But it's not pickle-flavored.
Well before the King of Pops elevated the ice pop to an unprecedented (and expensive) gourmet status, modest shops were making frozen treats by hand all over Atlanta’s Hispanic neighborhoods.
If you're sweltering in this summer heat (or just have a killer popsicle craving), the Westside Provisions District is hosting a King of Pops pop-up during the next three weekends, featuring half-price pops.
The Popsicle, a brand name owned by the Unilever corporation but often used in the vernacular, has come a long way since its chemical-flavored beginnings. It was allegedly invented in the 1900s by an eleven-year-old who left a stirrer overnight in his cup of fruit-flavored soda and found a tasty treat in the morning after a freeze. Mexican immigrants to the U.S. brought with them the culture of paletas—small-batch ice pops made from spiced fresh fruit. In the last couple of years, young entrepreneurs from all over have started producing handcrafted ice pops using organic and local ingredients in an increasingly sophisticated range of tastes.
