The ladies at the Monsoon Kitchen really opened my eyes to true popsicle creativity. Ever since I tried their crazy and inventive frozen treats I find it impossible to drink anything without wondering if it might be better frozen.
With this in mind I began my search for other frozen things to be had around Tucson, stumbling upon the fantastic company Prickly Pops a short time later. They are frozen. They are made with cool things like prickly pears and yellow Tohono O’odham watermelon. They are available at several farmers’ markets around town, and they sound delicious.
I’m trying to get in touch with the owner for a list of current flavors, but no luck yet. I might just have to head over to the Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market on Thursday and experience them first-hand instead.
