We wanted to reinvent the authenticity of gelato and nostalgic feeling to which you are accustomed, with this kid friendly delight. Portable, easy to eat, and environmentally friendly.
Gelato is not quite ice cream, and it's as simple as that.
At popbar we proudly use natural ingredients to offer a traditional gelato experience filled with an abundance of taste and fun in each bite.
• Ice Cream has a high percentage of cream, resulting in more calories and more fat. NOT POP
• Gelato uses more milk than cream, saving you from very unfriendly calories. VERY POP
• Ice Cream consists of more air (upwards of 50%!), significantly compromising authentic taste and flavor. NOT POP
• Gelato uses less air to create a denser and richer product that is full of flavor, but light on your palate (and gentler on your scale). VERY POP
Our basic flavors of popGelato are Banana, Chocolate, Coconut, Coffee, Cream, Gianduia, Hazelnut, Mint, Peanut Butter, Pistachio and Vanilla. Premium combinations and special flavors rotate on a daily basis to offer a wide selection.
As for popSorbettos, try our Lemon, Mango, Mixed Berries, Orange, Peach, Pineapple, Strawberry or one of the many flavors that rotate depending on the seasonal fresh fruit selection.
It depends on the creator and the product. All options are outlined on the product page, so look out for customization options there.
