Date July 30, 2010

Honeydew Cucumbers La Newyorkina - NYCFoodGuy.com

The lovely ladies of La Newyorkina, creators of Manhattan’s only artisanal Mexican ice pops, better know as paletas, are at it again! Saturday marks the debut of a brand new flavor paleta at Hester Street Fair: Honeydew Cucumber.  It’s best described by La Newyorkina co-founder Hannah Goldberg:

“They say that it’s not easy being green, especially when one is a popsicle, but this one manages beautifully. A pale green with a delicate and elusive flavor that treads that fine line between sweet and savory – super-refreshing and utterly delicious. I hope you’ll make it down to the Fair to taste one!”

You heard the lady! Get down to Hester Street Fair and try one for yourself, tell them NYC Food Guy sent you.

    We are loving this popsicle moment that NYC is having this summer. http://www.harrietmagpie.com recently reviewed People’s Pops, the popsicle company who uses only locally grown fruits and infuses them with interesting flavor combos – apricot lavender and rhubarb jasmine. We picked our fave flavor – you should check them out too, when you get a chance! They’re on the highline this month!

    What the hell is going on with this site? “Popsicle moment” that NYC is having? But nobody wants to talk about how much they cost? Something tells me when “artisinal” mexican popsicles are made by Hannah Goldberg, they probably cost a bit more than a Froze-fruit.

    Just when we were out the door on cupcakes we get Popsicles. I can’t wait for artisinal lollipops. No more pastrami, pizza or canolis, NY is a Popsicle town!

    Does anyone know where you can buy FrozFruit bars these days in Manhattan? I’m UWS, so the closer to there the better for getting them home without melting.

  17. Kim said:

    We have a food truck here in Dallas that does popsicles! It is such a great idea to use recipes that are healthy, light and fun! good job! Lovely color – wish I had one now! :)

    This looks and sounds like the perfect treat for a hot summer day! We will have to make it to the Hester Street Fair in the Lower East Side before the summer is out. Hopefully, if the weather is nice, we will stop by there this Saturday.

    These reminds me of the yummy tropical popsicles in Playa Del Carmen Mexico. I bet this is so refreshingly good!
