The Hyppo in St. Augustine Turns Fresh Ingredients Into a Sweet Treat

    By Rachelle Lucas

    Ah, the familiar tastes that take you back to the summers of your youth. Who can forget the taste of a cold popsicle on a hot day? Starfruit, avacado coconut and pistachio rosewater … What? Not so familiar to you? Then you haven't spent much time at The Hyppo in downtown St. Augustine. "Wherever I can get fresh ingredients," says VISIT FLORIDA Food & Dining Insider Rachelle Lucas, "and I know that what I'm eating is also good for me —even if it might be a treat, like an ice pop — that just makes my day." Stop by and see if they've got any pineapple ginger pops, or pineapple cilantro, chocolate cheesecake, bourbon apple pie or mojito. They've tried out 450 flavor combinations over the past three years, so you never know what they'll have when you swing by.
