Van Trauma Makes Us Better Lovers

We once read that it's the difficult times that make life sweeter. So, when our van broke down on the way to the BK Flea last weekend it was tear-inducing, especially since we canceled the day before due to Hurricane Bill hanging around us like a roving drunk maniac, button-fly undone and all.

In any case, our van is a bit better (after David spooned it Monday night), and our pops are…well…they're really damn tasty this week.

Also, be sure to stop by Stinky bklyn starting today as they are now carrying a fantastic selection of people's pops flavors!!!

And please, pretty-please administer Nathalie a jet-lag-busting high-five, Top Gun-style.

Elope With Cantaloupe and Lavender Holyfield

We've come across a very strange, very interesting song thanks to our friend Chris over at shopbop. Let's be clear though: toes never come into contact with our pops. That is, unless you buy one from us, then take it onto the subway and do whatever freaky fetish you're into. We don't even think the two should ever really be referenced in the same sentence together. Who'd actually want pop toes? Especially if they looked like our blackberry cantaloupe?

Hmm. The more we think about it, the more we agree this post is a tad foul. Kindly disregard it.

Waterpopsi Melonsicles and Provence on a Stick

So it's TOTALLY SUMMER. That's what watermelons mean to me, and this week, we've finally got 'em. After the financial nightmare of combining blackberries, Ronnybrook organic yogurt and local honey into one pop that we nonetheless had to sell for $3.50, it's a relief.

We've mixed the watermelon with mint and, not gonna lie, were tempted to dribble in a fifth of vodka. Managed to restrain ourselves though. However, don't let us keep you from packing a flask. If you come by the Brooklyn Flea, remember, sharing is caring. We'll provide the ice.

In other news, the second new flavor this week, roasted apricot and lavender, is officially the most delicious flavor of the year, or maybe I'm just delighted that I finally used lavender in something that didn't end up tasting soapy.

When my sister turned 20 five years ago, I woke her up with cheesecake I'd "artsily" [misguidedly] infused with lavender. She's smiling. She wasn't once she tasted it. If I remember correctly, she spat the first bite out.

We had to pit apricots this week, but after the sour cherry "pitsicle" debacle, followed by our discovery last week, after multiple hours of halving sugar plums, that it's actually much easier NOT to halve plums before pitting them, we finally got it right this week. Witness how our feelings of defeat and stupidity have segued into smugness and superiority.

Gershon, looking smug and superior.

Joel, looking smug and superior.

David, looking smug and superior.

Nathalie, looking smug, and also like a freak.

Not to worry, hubris-watchers, I'm sure the Greenmarket gods will smite us with some incontrovertible cabala next week.

An incontrovertible cabala.

Anyway, popsifans, here's the layout for the weekend.
