Pop ‘N Tea – Food as Art – She Forks Event

Pop ‘N Tea – Food as Art- She Forks Event       

💎 Growing up in Arizona, popsicles were their own food group! Now that we are grown up, we were more than ecstatic when we heard of Pop ‘N Tea Bar in Phoenix.

Their adult version of the popsicle involves gelato frozen into diamond shaped popsicle bars, then dipped into chocolate and choice of toppings.

On February 20th, 2018 we attended another amazing She Forks Phoenix event, Food As Art, at the Pop ‘N Tea located in Phoenix. We were graced with the company of other great bloggers and influencers.

Matt, Benson and Eric, the owners of Pop ‘N Tea, treated us with amazing boba drink samples, and the ever so glorious, gelato diamond gelato bar. These three friends are passionate about only serving up quality products from quality ingredients.

A couple fun facts about Pop ‘N Tea Bar:  The building they are in used to be a flower shop. As a tribute to the history of that building they designed their logo to look like a flower bouquet. Pretty cool, huh!

E&K Favorites: Erika’s favorite is the Sea Salt Caramel Gelato Bar dipped in dark chocolate and topped with crushed peanuts. Kaylyn’s favorite is the Vanilla Gelato Bar dipped in milk chocolate and topped with pistachios.
