Pops ice cream with many locations is GREAT ice cream. One of my favorites is Chocolote almond. I have been coming to Costa Rica since 1999.

Pops has been in Costa Rica for at least 40 years and continues to offer unusual and unique flavors as well as everyone's favorites. All flavors taste like what they are. No artificial taste.
