Nothing helps beat the Charleston heat like a popsicle. But what if you could get your mitts on a hand-crafted, gourmet popsicle made using seasonal ingredients that burst with flavor -- oh, wait, you can!

Keep an eye out for a new popsicle cart around town, The King of Pops.

On a mission to provide an ecologically responsible, fresh, all-natural frozen treat in a fun neighborhood environment, The King of Pops cart has been making quite a name for itself lately. Twitter has been abuzz with positive feedback on the array of flavors which include: Chocolate Sea Salt, Mexican Chocolate, Banana Puddin', Strawberry Lemonade, Grapefruit Mint, Raspberry Lime, Arnold Palmer, and Coconut Lemongrass.

The Charleston City Paper has a brief on the cart; check it out.

If you're feeling frisky and want to get your hands on the frozen goods, the cart has been stationed on Broad Street by Washington Square all week long.
