Popo's Reopens With a New Color and New Products
A fresh fruit bar and a lactose/gluten/fat/cholesterol-free treat join the hot dogs, ice cream and yogurt line-up at the Humphrey Street restaurant.
The open screen door and ice cream cone sign hanging outside Popo's Friday signaled two things for the Humphrey Street landmark: spring is upon us and Popo's is open.
Actually, the restaurant has been open since March 9 — a welcome sign for hot dog aficionados and ice cream lovers.
Store Manager Jackie Coppola said Popo's/Kell's Kreme is serving a relatively new product — it was introduced late last season — called Dole Whip.
It tastes like a soft-serve sherbert and is lactose/gluten/fat/cholesterol-free.
Jackie said customers have been asking for lactose-free and gluten-free products so Popo's found Dole Whip to serve.
The restaurant by the sea also has a fresh fruit bar with an array of berries and melon to top ice cream and frozen yogurt.
You'll maybe notice another change inside Popo's. A new color.
Where once a Brazilian yellow colored the walls a paint called paprika covers them now.
Popo's is open seven days a week, its doors open at 11 a.m.
