Frozen Budino Pops Are Back!

Yes, they’re back. Frozen Budino Pops have returned to Midtown Village. Beginning Friday, July 11th summer on 13th street can officially begin.

All hail the return of chef Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran’s ever so decadent, totally scrumptious, melt-in-your mouth dessert. If you’ve never tasted the perfection that is the frozen budino pop, its the grown-up version of your favorite summer popsicle.


Chef Turney wraps a core of magic salted caramel and dark chocolate cookie crumbs with frozen caramel pudding, then hand-dips it in happiness dark chocolate and sprinkles Maldon sea salt on top. The pops are a seasonal play on the best-selling Budino dessert offered at the restaurant duo’s acclaimed Barbuzzo.

Through August the pops will be available to anyone with a sweet tooth every Friday beginning at 11 a.m. You will find them behind the Marcie Blaine Chocolate counter at Verde on South 13th St for $5 each. Set your alarms, and show up early because the pops sell out unbelievably fast. As if you needed more proof of their popularity.

Feel free to drool all over your keyboards. No one will judge you because they are just as good as they sound. And look. In fact, they're even better.

For more information on the Frozen Budino Pops, please call Verde at (215) 546-8700. Or, you know, just stop in and buy one. Or two. Or twelve...
