Popbar: Gelato on a stick arrives at Metrotown


Shoppers at Metropolis at Metrotown now have another reason to visit the mall, thanks to newcomer Popbar, a New York-founded company that specializes in handcrafted gelato on a stick.

Now open, the Metrotown storefront is Popbar’s second location in Canada. It joins the Edmonton locale in offering customizable, all natural, and gluten-free popGelato, popSorbetto, and YogurtPops.

At Metrotown’s Popbar, customers will find classic flavours such as vanilla, chocolate, and coffee; exotic flavors such as passion fruit, green tea, and banana; and seasonal ones too, which include pumpkin pie, mango, and kiwi.

Each of these frozen creations can be dipped (in premium dark chocolate) and topped with a range of “Poppings,” including almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, coconut, chocolate sprinkles, and Caramel Corn.

Popbar’s pops are also very photogenic:
