Popbar is a chain of ice cream shops specializing in gelato on a stick. Handcrafted gelato, sorbetto and yogurt are frozen on sticks and then customized with your choice of various chocolate dips and toppings.
We recently checked out the location inside Anaheim Packing District. It was our first time to Anaheim Packing District and I loved it! I’ll share more photos from Anaheim Packing District later, but it’s such a beautiful space with dozens of restaurants to try. The only issue I had is that they don’t allow any cameras. Cell phone photos only and they are quite strict. I haven’t seen so many security guards since my last visit to the airport.
These hanging succulents were one of my favorite things here.
There are quite a few pop flavors to choose from. Once you choose your flavor, you have several dip options like white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, etc. You can also choose to have your popbar completely dipped, half dipped or drizzled with chocolate. Then you also more than half a dozen toppings to choose from like waffle cone bits, shredded coconut, crushed nuts.
Green Tea gelato pop, half dipped in dark chocolate and covered in chopped hazelnuts
This was my customized pop. The gelato was quite creamy, and yet solid enough for me to snap a few photos and enjoy without it melting too much on me.
Mr. K chose a chocolate hazelnut, half dipped in milk chocolate and covered in chopped pistachios.
His was equally enjoyable. Creamy and smooth, with just the right balance of chocolate and hazelnut flavor.
Overall, we really enjoyed our pops. I see them show up on my Instagram feed often and have been wanting to try them for a long time. I’m glad we finally got to try them and we’ll likely get them again next time we are in the area.

Ahh you made it down to the OC for Popbar! I’ve heard so many great things about the Packing District but still haven’t had the chance to make a visit but I need that green tea gelato pop in my life!! Hahah 🙂
it’s a really fun place! we liked a lot of restaurants inside
What? No cameras? What are they afraid of I wonder. I remember seeing all of my nephews post their ice cream bars on IG last year. You and Mr. K picked good flavor combinations (I like the diagonal dip too). All of those floating air plants look quite striking.
I’m not sure as to why the camera policy. it’s too bad. Next time I think I might get my bar half dipped and drizzled.
Aww I got so excited thinking that this was in SD =P We need one here!
we do need one here!
