"When scouting out a location for our Popbar shop, CrossIron Mills immediately came to mind," says Monika Swiderski, one of the owners of Popbar Calgary. Amy Boers, who is opening the new Popbar location with Monika, could not agree more when deciding on where to open the shop. "Since Popbar appeals to all ages, genders, income levels and basically anyone who enjoys a frozen treat, we were aiming to open in a place with many different types of high end shops and every day brands. CrossIron Mills seemed like the perfect place. And once we heard that they were planning to open a food hall, we just knew we chose the right spot."
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 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 forty rotational flavors of popbars, but a customizable experience where each pop is dipped and topped according to the customers' requests.
In addition to Calgary, Popbar has locations in Edmonton, Burnaby, and Abbotsford as well as nine other locations in the United States. Popbar is looking forward to continuing to expand in Canada and will be opening multiple new locations in the United States later this year.
