Le Pops will open store in the Heights this summer

Great news for Little Rockers bracing for the heat and humidity coming our way: Le Pops will be offering up their "gourmet ice lollies" this summer at a new brick and mortar shop in the Heights. The 860-square-foot shop will be at 5501 Kavanaugh, next door to Eggshells Kitchen Co., with an opening targeted for June 1. 

Le Pops had previously had a shop in the River Market until closing at the end of this year after owner Laurie Harrison said they outgrew the space and weren't getting as much traffic from locals as they hoped. Fans of Harrison's frozen sweet treats can look forward to familiar favorites: delicious ice pops made from fresh ingredients, including local berries, peaches, and coffee beans. The creative flavors rotate; some highlights include cucumber jalapeno, grapefruit avacado, Mexican chocolate, and blackberry lavender. Harrison said there will also be some new offerings, including shaved ice with fresh fruit, and a new twist she's keeping mum about for the time being. "We're going to be doing more fun things with the pops," she said. "Top secret for now."

In addition to the shop, Le Pops will continue to serve up pops at festivals, markets and events around town, including the Farmers Market in the River Market on Saturdays. They should have a truck ready soon, Harrison said — "you'll see it bopping around town." Harrison will continue her wholesale business as well. Her son David is now helping her with the business.

The shop will likely be open seven days a week and will stay open until dark.
