For the June Episode of Hometown on WJCT, I had the opportunity to interview Stephen Dimare of the Hyppo on Hypolita Street in Saint Augustine. I accidentally discovered his shop a few years ago when I took the Savory Faire tasting tour of St. Augustine. Popsicles aren’t normally among my favorite foods and I wasn’t exactly thrilled that our itinerary included them. However, the flavorful “paletas” served at the Hyppo shocked me! They were so packed with fruit and flavor that after tasting them, I developed a dangerous addiction that I indulge in every chance I get.
These aren’t your average popsicles! And the flavors are anything but boring. I personally love the Strawberry Datil dipped in dark chocolate or the Pistacio Rosewater, if he has them.
Check out the YouTube video below to see exactly how they are made:
