The Hyppo Downtown Orlando
It’s getting hot out there and what better way to cool off then to get a delicious frozen treat. How about a gourmet popsicle? What madness is this?! It’s true, organic popsicles in downtown Orlando. Close to Lake Eola and underneath Post Parkside, you’ll find the Hyppo. Small little place but tons of flavors inside. The Hyppo has interesting flavors such as the Cucumber Lemon Mint or the Mexican Hot Chocolate. Some of the pops have dairy in it, which are labeled on the board. They are constantly rotating the selection here, so you’ll have plenty to chose from. The “Elvis” is a popular hit, it’s made with peanut butter, banana and honey.
The interior has mint chocolate green walls, two tables and seven chairs. Pretty small place, so it’s good to get a pop and walk around the neighborhood. The gourmet pops are flash frozen and the texture is soft yet firm.
The Pineapple Ginger was alright for me but not a favorite for me. The ginger was prevalent but not too strong. I thoroughly enjoyed the Pistachio Coconut. With the creamy coconut flavor and the tastiness of the pistachios, I was a happy camper. Neither overpowered one another, it was a nice delicate balance. The Champagne Mango was also another delightful treat. Just so you know, it doesn’t have any champagne in it. It’s actually a type of mango, Ataulfo mango. The name is a bit misleading especially when you see a flavor like Riesling Pear. The Riesling Pear pops are made from fresh pears blanched in a Riesling wine.
The Hyppo has cold brewed drip coffee which they get from Credo. It’s a fun process to watch.
The original location is in Saint Augustine and the pops brought over from there. Each pop is $3.50 including tax. You can get extra fancy and get it dipped in chocolate for an additional dollar. For those can’t get enough of the Hyppo, you can actually order the pops online. How awesome is that?!
The Hyppo has only been open 3 months but they’re already looking to open another location in Orlando. The Hyppo is a wonderful addition to Orlando and I look forward to trying the other flavors!
