There’s nothing cooler, or more nostalgia-inducing, than a cold popsicle on a hot summer day. But these aren’t your grandparents’ frozen treats. Let us introduce you to some of Owensboro’s newest takes on a timeless classic.

Armando Ortiz’s newest Owensboro establishment offers what he describes as “wild and tropical” flavors. The popsicles are Mexican-style and made from real fruit. The flavors are as vibrant as the colors, and include a striped strawberry, cream and lime popsicle, paying homage to the Mexican flag. For something you may not have tried before, go with the mango and chamoy.
For hand-crafted popsicles with natural ingredients and no artificial colors, look no further than Owensboro’s frozen treat truck – Hello Pop. Their flavors include banana, lemonade, pineapple, strawberry and watermelon.
Ok, so it’s not technically a popsicle, but who’s going to argue about including the tasty treat that is Kona Ice? Look for their truck locally at events throughout the summer to indulge in flavors like blue raspberry and tiger’s blood – or mix as many as you want to make your own unique creation.
