and Nutty Squirrel
both serve creamy versions of the summertime treat.
Fainting Goat Gelato
Today, August 26, is Cherry Popsicle Day, and next Monday, September 2, is Blueberry Popsicle Day, so it's clearly the ideal week to seek out a frosty treat. If you find yourself hankering for a nostalgic pick-me-up to see you through the last gasp of summer, look no further than our round-up of frozen pops (yes, apparently the moniker "popsicles" is trademarked by Unilever, although that's not stopping anyone from calling them that) in Seattle.
