Pop Culture Artisan Pops emerged last year as an online-only business selling ice pops in unique flavors, but they can now be found at Aloha Farm Lovers’ Pearlridge farmers market every Saturday. One of the business’s newest flavors, Whatamelon, is Pop Culture’s first multilayered pop with a watermelon base and dual-layered sweet cream “rind” that features a dash of green tea. Cookie in De Coconut, a collaboration between three Aloha Farms Lovers vendors, just released this past week. Visit popcultureap.com to preorder. Doughn’t you want some? Edible (1960 Kapiolani Blvd.) is known for its ready-to-eat cookie dough and house-made specialty cookies. If you want to treat yourself, order the cookie dough sundae ($7), which features two flavors, locally sourced soft serve and a topping of your choice. Cookie Monster — a blue-hued mix of housemade chocolate chip cookies and Oreos — and ube haupia made with real Okinawan sweet potato are especially popular among customers. Call 808-947-7263 or visit its Instagram (@ediblehonolulu) for more info.
