Lil' Pop Shop Takes a Lil' Gamble at 44th and Spruce


And POP! go our hearts for this new eatery attempting to find a home in University City. Looks like the space formerly occupied by Unitea (where'd you go, huh?), is set to house Lil' Pop Shop, a new gourmet popsicle shop. Featuring such exotic flavors as Vietnamese coffee and cucumber lime mint, the store is set to open in May under the ownership of Jeanne Chang, as the DP reports.

While this week's heat certainly makes yummy popsicles sound appealing, we worry how many Penn students will venture out to 44th in place of cheaper options closer to campus. Time will only tell if Lil' Pop Shop can outsell boxed Firecrackers at Wawa. We suggest cleverer jokes on the sticks.
