Pop's Old Fashioned Ice Cream Company Restaurant Review

: Pop's brings back memories of good old times and quality ice cream served in heaping scoops. The recipes were originally created by Ray "Pop" Giovanni, who spent much of his early career catering events at the White House. (First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was a fan of his ice cream.) Flavors include the usuals, such as strawberry, vanilla and chocolate, but the ice cream master sneaks in Cleveland Brownie, Carrot Cake, Rum Raisin and Pralines & Cream. There are toppings, too, and if you really want to splurge you can get sundaes or pies. Lactose-free soft-serve is also available.
