sorry for the blurriness of the picture - Preston took it on his phone- see vulcan in the background - "steel" city pops - get it?
If you live within driving distance of Birmingham and have not been to Steel City Pops, get in your car today and drive to Birmingham. They are soooooo delicious. No one is paying me to write this blog post. They have no idea that I'm even writing about them. They make all their popsicles right there with real ingredients. My favorite is the toasted coconut. There are actually big hunks of toasted coconut down at the bottom of the stick. The buttermilk one tastes sort of like cheesecake. The blood orange is good. The peanut butter one is delicious. DO NOT THINK THEY ARE TOO EXPENSIVE. They are so worth every penny. This is a real treat. It was quite funny because while we were standing there eating our popsicles, several people we knew came into the store . . .our friend, Kyle and his son, Andy, who had just arrived home from college walked in. There are children in Steel City Pops but it is as much an adult store as a children's place.
Anyway, this was a great way to start the weekend - a margarita, mexican food, lots of laughter and good conversation with friends, and a popsicle - doesn't that sound like a great Friday night? What is your favorite Friday night activity after a long week?
