Steel City Pops

June 9, 2018

When I work at the Children's Hospital I'm the popsicle lady.

Popsicles remind me of summers with my brother and our shenanigans.  In the summer we'd eat as many popsicles as we could just to read the jokes to each other while playing video games.
Memories that make you smile on tough days.

I didn't know this but there's actually a Steel City Pops location in Atlanta. I thought we only had King of Pops, which I've never tried even after seeing them ALL THE TIME in Athens.

The shop is located in a college town so I can see this being a hang out spot for summer school students or even after class during spring semester. 

After walking around all day hunting for murals, museums and tacos I decided to grab a snack before dinner. Popsicles are the happy medium. It's a hard slushie, without the extra ice left behind when you drink all the juice. It was also nice that it was light enough to not spoil my appetite. 

I picked a good time to visit the shop. It was fairly empty and very quiet. The ordering process was quick. I will say, I don't feel like I got the full experience because I decided not to dip + drizzle + sprinkle my popsicle. Things to do next time!

Since I wanted a big dinner later I decided not to order a "rich" flavor.  I was really torn between Passion Fruit and Strawberry Lemonade. I'm a creature of habit, so of course I picked what I know, Strawberry Lemonade. 

Honestly, it was nothing fancy, just refreshing! It's a really cute concept!

The only downside is that it was a little pricey. For the same price you could buy a whole box of popsicles. But you could really say that about any type of fast food or "fine dining" experience.

Overall, I would visit again, but not somewhere I would go on a regular basis. It's like froyo. Somewhere to go when you want to have girl chat after pedicures!

Bonus points: All the popsicles are made with natural ingredients and locally sourced ingredients. I'm not a food snob but I can really appreciate when food is fresh. You really can taste the difference. 

Super Bonus points: The have a rewards programs! I love free stuff! It's easy to rack up rewards in the warmer months.
