Though the phrase "water ice" somehow doesn’t sound very appealing, Pop Pop’s frozen treats are divine slushy mixtures somewhere between sorbet and a Slurpee. In fact, we think Pop Pop’s water ices are the most refreshing of the bunch we’ve tried. Sure, the flavors taste kind of fake. But so do Slurpees and who can get enough of those? If you’re a freak for fair food, be sure to check out the cotton candy-flavored ice. It’s got the exact same flavor only not overpoweringly sweet. It’s shockingly good. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
