A fixture at farmers markets and local events since 2017, Cabeto’s Pops is bringing its premium ice cream bars to a permanent storefront on Adams Avenue. With Viva Pops closed since 2019, Cabeto’s marks the return of frozen pops to Normal Heights; the shop debuts this week and has a grand opening event starting this Thursday, July 15 and running through Sunday, July 18 when the store will be offering one of its tiny pops free with every purchase of a larger pop.
Featuring both dairy-based and vegan-friendly options, Cabeto’s pops can be customized with toppings and dips. Some of its most popular offerings include smores, cookies and cream, strawberry shortcake, rocky road, mocha pretzel, and their “classic” bar dipped in chocolate and covered in almonds.
According to Cabeto’s Pops owner Carlos Talamante, there’s a huge variety of flavor combinations that can be created between all the bar flavors, dips and toppings. “There are hundreds, if not thousands of combinations when you combine all the pop flavors, chocolate covering options, and the different toppings,” he said.
“We don’t use any artificial flavors or colors, no high fructose corn syrup, no concentrates of any kind,” Talamante told Eater. “When you use high quality ingredients you end up with really a better tasting product.”
