I recently went along to the new PopBar location at CrossIron Mills. This is the first location in Calgary and the second in Alberta. With locations all across the USA,  Japan, Indonesia and South Korea, hopefully, there are much more Canadian locations to come!

What is Popbar?
Popbar is an awesome gelato stand that you may see popping up in malls near you. They proudly source only natural ingredients for their bars and the products are freshly made in the PopLab right on location! Another great thing? The products are gluten free and kosher certified.

There are different kinds of bars to try;
Popgelato: this bar offers a traditional style of Italian gelato
PopSorbettos: dairy free and made with 100% real fruit on location
YogurtPops: the smooth yogurt based bars

All of the bars contain no artificial colouring and are preservative free.

The super fun part
So, Popbar is not like going to a regular gelato place, it is so much more. They have a wide variety of flavours that rotate. The basic flavours for the gelato are; banana, chocolate, coconut, coffee, hazelnut, mint, peanut butter, pistachio and vanilla. For the sorbetto, the flavours are; lemon, mango, mixed berry, orange, peach, pineapple and strawberry. For Autumn, they even have a pumpkin pie flavour! You can see the full range of flavours here.

You can also customise your PopBar with toppings, which is there is also a large selection of. Some of the toppings and dips available are; almonds, hazelnut, pistachio, caramel corn, dark chocolate and white chocolate.

What I had
I couldn't go to PopBar and just try one I had two. I started off with the hazelnut gelato, half dipped in dark chocolate with pistachio topping. Biting into the hazelnut gelato with the dark chocolate was like eating Nutella. It was rich, creamy and delicious. The pistachio was a great finishing touch and I enjoyed the extra crunch. After trying a gelato, I had a sorbetto. I went with the blood-orange, drizzled with white chocolate. Wow. The flavours were amazing. It was so fresh and zingy. Perfect for a summer's day. The blood-orange was my favourite out of the two. It felt hydrating and was so simple yet delicious.

Have you tried PopBar yet?
