Emory campus is constantly hustling and bustling with exciting events and festivities. One of the highlights of the week for students is the Emory Farmers Market located on Cox Bridge every Tuesday.
The one vendor that people constantly look forward to is King of Pops. These deliciously refreshing popsicles never fail to delight students and faculty, whether they’re devoured as dessert following lunch or just a quick snack in between classes. On a hot and humid day in Atlanta, nothing can make your day more.
King of Pops has a unique backstory. Inspired by Latin American ice pops called paletas, three brothers concocted the idea while on a beach in Central America. A little later, the company was brought to life when one of the brothers lost his job and decided to pursue the family passion. Obviously this was a good idea considering the success of the popsicle vendor.
From Mexican chocolate to pear vanilla, King of Pops offers over 90 inventive, seasonal flavors, inspired by world travel from Southeast Asia to South America to Europe. The brothers are committed to inventing ecologically responsible and always fresh frozen treats.
A staple at almost every Emory event, King of Pops sets up shop with their signature stand. There is no official store for the company, however, King of Pops can be found in a variety of stores nearby and is always popping up around Atlanta.
Come find these refreshing treats every Tuesday on Cox Bridge from 11am-2pm. These are worth popping in for.
