Pleasant Pops grand opening – Saturday, July 3rd at Mt. Pleasant Farmers Market

“Dear PoP,

We started Pleasant Pops in March 2009 because we grew up in New York and North Carolina and absolutely adore “paletas,” a style of fresh fruit ice pops from Mexico.

I called Roger in March of last year after seeing an empty store front in Mount Pleasant and asked him to move to DC. Roger and I are former college roommates who met on the crew team freshman year.

Our flavors are all original creations we developed after dozens of informal taste tests and tasting parties over the past year.

The most memorable tasting party was a Saturday in February when 120 people came to taste our pops in the middle of the DC snowpocolypse. Strawberries and Cream, Blueberry Pancake, Banana Date, Avocado Lime (Guac Pop) and Green Tea were the biggest hits out of the dozen we offered at that party.

You can find Pleasant Pops at the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market, starting July 3rd, and every summer Saturday thereafter, from 9a.m-1p.m. We’re also available for catering special events and parties

Grand Opening

Date: Saturday, July 3, 2010
Time: 9:00am – 1:00pm
Location: Mt. Pleasant Farmers’ Market
Street: Mt. Pleasant Street
City/Town: Washington, DC”

  • I am there and I will be there every Saturday from now on. Good lord I love paletas.

  • Pleasantly surprised to see this on here. Just want to say their pops are dynamite. I was fortunate enough to be one of those in attendance at the snowpocalypse popsicle party. The Guac pop is freakin amazing — even in the middle of all that snow and coming in from the Malcolm X snowball fight.

  • are the pops lactose free?

  • Ha! Impostors. Nothing will ever top Las Paletas in Nashville. So awesome they don’t need a sign.

  • did any inspiration come from Locopops, in Durham and Chapel Hill, NC? Love those places. I’ll definitely come check out Pleasant Pops!

  • These pops are great! I was also at the snowpocalypse party and have been waiting for news of the Pleasant Pops Grand Opening ever since. I’ll definitely be visiting them this Saturday at the farmers market.

  • I can’t wait – also stoked to get some strawberry rhubarb pops and whatever blueberry creation they are coming up with. See you all on Saturday!

  • mmmm, cucumber chile, high of 90 degrees tomorrow…

  • Guac Pop? Oh snap
