If you're looking for a refreshing and fruity freeze, then go for the strawberry ginger lemonade popsicle ($3) on a scorching hot day.

D.C. humidity can be extremely unpleasant, but one local business might have a solution.

Pleasant Pops, located in Adams Morgan and downtown D.C., has a large variety of flavors to satisfy any cold craving and help beat the D.C. heat this summer. They offer unique pop flavors like rich Mexican chocolate, creamy New Orleans iced coffee and Carolina sweet tea.

The popsicles are made with fresh and local ingredients gathered from the D.C. area and all of their flavors are their own creative recipes.

The popsicles are seasonal, so you can have your favorite flavors while they’re fresh. All of their pops are handmade at their Adams Morgan shop, so you’re getting a true D.C. product.

If you’re looking for a refreshing and fruity freeze, then go for the strawberry ginger lemonade popsicle on a scorching hot day.

The fresh strawberry gives the popsicle its saccharine taste, while the lemonade adds a slightly sour flavor and the ginger gives it a kick of zest. The pop combines just the right amount of sweetness and tartness to keep your palate refreshed.

This popsicle will take you back to your childhood lemonade stand, giving each eater an interesting twist to a classic flavor.

If you aren’t in D.C. this summer, don’t worry. The popsicle joint doubles for a coffee shop and offers specials each season, even in the coldest months of the year. Pleasant Pops’ winter specialty is a hot pop, which is a cube of chocolate blended with different ingredients and served on a pop stick.

So let Pleasant Pops’ strawberry ginger lemonade popsicle cool you down before the semester starts and the season switches.

Pleasant Pops is located at both 731 15th St. NW and 1781 Florida Ave. NW. Popsicles are $3 each.
