This Heat Calls for a Sparkroot Popsicle

Posted By on Wed, Jul 11, 2012 at 1:00 PM

The hip little coffee bar and restaurant Sparkroot at 245 E. Congress St. is doing its part to combat the summer heat with its new line of homemade ice-pops. Sparkroot employee Julie Asis dropped us an e-mail last week with a description of the unique frozen treats:

I put them on the menu because they fit well with our gourmet take on childhood favorites - grilled cheese sandwiches and pb&js. Also, what's better than a tasty, refreshing popsicle in the middle of summer in tucson? Our kitchen team has fun taking turns inventing flavors. We like our treats unique and not too sweet, flavors that you can't get anywhere else in town like blackberry beet, strawberry basil lemonade, and banana chocolate peanut butter.

Nice. There's more on Sparkroot here.
