Enjoy the Best Gourmet Popsicles in Houston
Did you know that Popsicles were invented by accident?
In 1905, Frank Epperson left a cup of homemade soda with a stir stick outside overnight. The next morning he found the soda had frozen into a delicious treat.
Frank called it the Epsicle before changing the name to Popsicle in 1923. Today, there are several shops in Houston that serve gourmet Popsicles including:
At Popfancy Pops, the menu often changes to reflect the owner's green thumb approach to Popsicle making. The treats are created using organic sweeteners and fresh produce selected at the height of freshness. The flavors are inspired by health trends, nostalgic childhood memories, and even customer suggestions. Guests rate the shop 4.5-stars on Yelp as they appreciate the attentive service and range of fruity and creamy offerings. Choices include chocolate brownie, hibiscus raspberry, and pineapple mojito.
Voted Taste of the Town's "Best Dessert" in 2018, KICPOPS is an all-natural gourmet Popsicle company born here in Houston. The Popsicles are handcrafted in small batches using locally sourced market-fresh ingredients. KICPOPS has mobile carts throughout the city, and the flavors depend on the season. The selection may include watermelon agave, dark chocolate sea salt, and mango tajin.

Nestled in Houston Heights, Steel City Pops is a family owned and operated company that was established after months of planning and taste testing.
