Started by husband-wife duo Shelly & Khalid, Island Pops is a modern Caribbean ice cream shop with seasonal flavors influenced by back home. I was first introduced to Island Pops circa 2016 when they were operating from an ice cream bike that sold Caribbean popsicles at events like Caribbeing in Brooklyn, and have since watched their business blossom into a bustling storefront with dozens of island-inspired flavors, ranging from soursop to Ovaltine to sorrel rum. My preferred flavors are sorrel, nutmeg, and the rum-infused hibiscus popsicle. But on a hot summer day, you really can’t go wrong with anything in this family-friendly ice cream shop.
