It’s been here forever Flavors are mild, milky and sweet. Favorite: Churchil a kind of milk shake made with colita ice cream that tasted like the famous granizados.

This place makes the best milk shakes. So many delicious flavors to choose from! We had a large order delivered to our office and they did a great job.

We went to pops about everyday when we are in Costa Rica. It is kind of a fun thing to do, the ice cream is good and not too expensive.

Very good, a bit pricey but the best ice cream in San Jose. They have places all over the city, the employees are very friendly and helpful as well.

There are many locations, but the ice cream is excellent in all of them. I've been disappointed in the retail locations from the USA that I've tried. Pops never disappoints. Now if they only carried cherry vanilla....
