5 Delicious Popsicles To Beat The Heat and Taste Better Than Ice Cream
It’s August. When the temperature gets hotter, grab an ice pop to cool yourself down. That’s what we have been doing since childhood days when sng bao was our favourite dessert. Now, we have a new frozen trend that is even better with real fruits – popsicles. Here are 5 places to savour the sweet tastes of summer, brought to you by Huawei P9 mobile phone.

Popaganda popsicle looks like an unassuming frozen treat but they are actually made from whole fruit, fresh coconut water and organic raw blue agave nectar. They have more than 10 sorbet flavours available, but some of their well-loved onces include Mango Coconut, Passionfruit and Kiwi Watermelon. A really refreshing treat is the passionfruit flavour ($5). Your face will cringe a little at first, but it gets better every bite. Check out their website for the list of places that offer their popsicles.

The well-loved handcrafted ice pop brand from Hong Kong, I SEE i SEE, is now here in 313 @ Somerset. Using top quality ingredients for its range of fruit and milk-based ice pops, each popsicle contains no preservatives or colouring. We love the Strawberry Hokkaido Milk ($6.90) which is a blend of U.S. imported strawberries with Hokkaido Milk. There is a mild sweet and milky taste, along with a hint of the blended strawberries. Sliced strawberries were also hand placed and it looks just like lovely hearts on an ice pop. Other flavours include cheesy raspberry, earl grey pistachio, refreshing kiwi and duria. Read more here.
Neh Neh Pop

Such a playful name, Neh Neh Pop offers some really interesting local flavours popsicles like Milo Dinosaur and Strawberry Pockle. If you want something safer, the Cherry Cheesecake flavour is adorned with pie crust crumble, a layer of white chocolate dip, sour cherries with a sweet cream cheese ice cream core. Another good option is the Double Chocolate Cone with crunched ice cream cone crumbs. These petite frozen treats is a great dessert after a meal.

Here’s the secret to Poppy Pops’s genius: the customer is in charge, because you create your unique popsicle with fruits, nuts, chocolate – everything you can think of! First, you pick the popsicle of your choice (flavors include pistachio, mango, and salted gula melaka). Then you pick the dip and toppings (including pistachio, oreo and crushed cookies). One of the popular popsicle is the Chocolate Salted Caramel ($4.80). The caramel filling added a burst of sweet with a gooey texture. They also offer mini popsicles or you can pair them with waffles.

After a visit to the Merlion Park, cool off with some popsicles from Frostbite. A refreshing option is the Mango Lychee ($6.40) filled with real bits of lychee and mango. To all durian lovers, you should definitely check out their Mao Shan Wang popsicle ($12), which felt like eating durian on an ice-cream stick. Even though it was pricey, the popsicle was creamy with durian flesh in the ice pop.
