What: gourmet popsicles
This weekend was filed with awesome food…a little too much eating went on on Saturday, but it’s all in the name of the blog, right? We headed to Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon to check out the flea market. There was a lot of junk, a lot of vintage clothing, but also a lot of really pretty jewelry. But besides all that, there were tons of delicious looking food stands. Since it was a sunny and hot day, we went for People’s Pops, a cute little popsicle stand. They were one of the food trucks that I had been following on Twitter–a couple of food trucks that travel around the NYC/Brooklyn area.
I ordered the rhubarb and chamomile. I had just been getting over a cold, so the chamomile really appealed to me, and I absolutely love the flavor of rhubarb. It looks ugly, but tasted awesome. At $3.50 a pop (ha, literally), it was a bit overpriced for a little popsicle, but this IS New York City.
What: cookies, ice cream, ice cream sandwiches, baked goods
Where: West Village
YUM. We went a little overboard on the sweets that day, but would you just look at this ice cream sandwich!? You can choose two different cookies or two of the same, and then a flavor of gelato for the inside. I went with two dark chocolate toffee cookies with mint gelato inside. It was really good, really messy, and wayyyy too much sugar for one girl. I could only get through half of it and I felt uncomfortably full afterwards. I’d highly recommend the cookies, though. Just pop in and grab a cookie. Leave the ice cream sandwich to share with a friend.
