Sizzlin’ Berry, Guava Hibiscus, Parisian Pink, Blackberry Mojito, Petal Pusher—these might sound like the latest craft cocktails or lip stain shades, but they’re hot new options in ice pops. One thing’s for sure: This childhood favorite has grown up, with flavor combinations that will impress any food snob. From King of Pops in Atlanta, Georgia to Geauxsicles in Shreveport, Louisiana and The Hyppo in St. Augustine, Florida, a new wave of pop stands is proving that Southerners are the foremost experts in cooling off tastefully. If you can’t pop into one of their locations, you can still take these treats to the porch or poolside with their online ordering options. Here’s a sampling of our favorite frozen assets.

King of Pops (Atlanta, Georgia)
Started by two brothers (a lawyer and a former product analyst), King of Pops has grown from a pushcart to locations across the South. $30/12 pops;

Geauxsicles (Shreveport, Louisiana)
Bright colors and fleurs-de-lis? You know these pops are Louisiana-made. Call for prices; 318/865-8110 and

The Hyppo (St. Augustine, Florida)
America’s oldest city has some of the most modern pop flavors. $40/12 pops;
