Taste Illustrated: Lil’ PopShop, By the Numbers

Jeanne Chang’s gourmet popsicle shop, Lil’Pop Shop, born in UCity and with a second location coming to South Street, is the perfect place to beat the summer heat. But have you ever wondered which among her many unique flavors are ordered most? We did, so we asked.


And though we know each of the above flavors will hit the spot, what we really want to try right now, is the Red Hot Mango Chile Pepper. This popsicle flavor is a collaboration between Lil’Pop Shop their 44th Street neighbor, Honest Tom’s that brings together pureed mangoes and Honest Tom’s spicy habanero salsa.
