NEW ORLEANS – The first New Orleans location of New York City-based frozen treat franchise Popbar will celebrate its grand opening next Wednesday, May 26 at 207 N. Peters St. in the French Quarter.

Popbar features popsicle-style frozen treats made with handcrafted gelato, sorbetto and yogurt. All items are made in-house daily and feature more than 60 flavors, including vanilla, pistachio, green tea, passionfruit, spicy chocolate, watermelon and pumpkin pie – depending on the time of year.
