BURNABY, British Columbia, March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Popbar, the maker of customizable popGelato, popSorbetto, and yogurtPops, founded in New York, New York, USA in 2010, has opened its second Canadian location in Burnaby, British Columbia. The shop is located at Metropolis at Metrotown- 4700 Kingsway, Unit 1139C (next to Real Canadian Superstore).

Popaholics will also have the opportunity to enter to win free popbars for a year and learn about the brand and what makes it so unique.
"Metropolis at Metrotown has everything- supermarkets, movie theatres, many shops of all kinds, high end to dollar stores, and even a university," says Peter Sidonio, owner of the new Popbar location in Burnaby. "The one thing I had noticed that it was missing was a frozen treats shop which uses the highest quality all natural ingredients and caters to us Gelato and Sorbetto lovers and those with dietary restrictions. When I mention to friends and acquaintances that I am opening a Popbar shop in Burnaby their usual reaction is 'Now I don't have to travel all the way to New York or Anaheim to customize my very own popGelato popbar!' "
At Popbar, you will find classic flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, and coffee, unusual and exotic flavors such as passion fruit, green tea, and banana, and seasonal ones too, which include pumpkin pie, mango, and kiwi. Each can be dipped and topped to the customer's liking. Other Popbar treats include Hot Chocolate on a Stick, Frozen Hot Chocolate, Popaccino, nut spreads, and Poppings to Go, Popbar's signature Poppings enrobed in chocolate.
Popbar was founded in the United States in New York City in 2010. The concept and brand was built upon love for an Italian dessert which is authentic but at the same time all-natural, gluten-free, and low in sugar and calories. Popbar not only offers 40 rotational flavors of popbars, but a customizable experience where each pop is dipped and topped according to the customers' requests.
Popbar is expanding not only in Canada but the United States as well. The brand is to open multiple new locations throughout 2016. Popbar recently opened shops across California and Florida and will be popping up in other US cities soon.
