As much as I love the thrill of spring slowly emerging, I am now officially ready for consistent warm weather! I am itching to get to our first events of the year! Thankfully this year is shaping up to be much better than last year! If you look along the right side of the page, you will see the many events that are shaping up.
AND, we are excited to tell you that we have several new locations where you can find us:
*Bold Face Dairy Bar in Price Hill
*Fork and Pie Bakery in Newtown, OH
*Milk and Beans in Crescent Springs, KY
Let us know if you want to see us somewhere near you!
First week back to pop season has been great! We’ll just ignore that first day of snow 🙂 Thankfully it has been amazing weather since then! If you have a spring or summer event coming up make sure you get on our calendar soon! We can cater just pops or you can schedule the bike to come to your special event! Looking forward to a MUCH better season than terrible 2020!!!
Season number 9!! It is hard to believe this will be our 9th season making and selling pops! I’m not going to lie, 2020 was pretty hard to push through as a company and personally. Which, I’m sure you completely understand. But, a silver lining has emerged! I recently applied for and received (after being denied three others) a small grant for COVID relief. This allowed me to pay for 2/3s of a new freezer, which will greatly improve my work space and allow me to store over 1,200 pops at a time without even batting an eye. This is a big deal for me!!! Check out this beauty! If you have an event or location that you want us at this summer, let us know! We want to utilize this freezer to the fullest, after a truly gross season last year!
One of my favorite parts of owning Bello’s Bike Pops is interacting with the families and “regulars”. I love when kids have a favorite flavor or feed a pop with their puppy! (puppy pops that is!) Last week I had a mom say that since 8am her daughter had been talking about going to the market for a pop that evening! How cute! We are at the Fort Thomas Farmer’s Market every week unless it is pouring rain on Wednesdays from 3pm to 7pm.
Also, this week we will be at Tower Park for pops after the free dance class put on by Vibe Fitness. Check those beautiful sugar free fruit cocktail pops!
I cannot recall a single June in Cincinnati that started with me choosing pants over shorts and sleeping with the windows open. What glorious weather we are having! I hope you are getting out and enjoying walks and dinners outside!
Today is tropical day at the shop! If you come in any tropical attire you get 50% off your coconut mocha or pops of your choice!
We are so thankful for all of you who have sponsored Pops for Cops! We have completed Alexandria, Ft. Thomas, Dayton, Newport, Covington, and still have Anderson and Milford to go next week! If you would like to sponsor your neighborhood first responders, please click on the “buy pops” in the menu bar. Feel free to let us know who you want us to take them to!
We are excited to roll out a new initiative! We are so thankful for our first responders, and love how they regularly just swing by our shop to see how we are all doing during this! We want to bless them with some sweet treats!
You can hop on Carabello’s website and order them there! They are just already set up to take online payment so it is faster and easier! Pops for Cops! will take you there. If you would like to set up for us to do a drop off for a specific neighborhood/city please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Apparently I am the dog pop lady these days! As you all know, these COV-ID19 times are very strange! We are only allowed to serve out of a window at the cafe, and all of our April events were cancelled. One of the fun, surprising outcomes of this is though, that people are on walks with their dogs a lot! This means tons of fun photos of owners and their dogs!! So, we hope to see you at our window soon with your furry bestie for a treat for you both!!
It seems hard to believe that we are already in August. Summer always seems to fly by! I’m a “summer forever” type of gal myself, but I know many people love Autumn! Autumn is nice and all…it’s the impending doom of winter behind it that sort of ruins it for me! We have some great Fall flavors on the calendar though! If you haven’t had our Rosemary Apple Cider, you are seriously missing out!! Keep your eyes open for that one as well as the Pumpkin Pie pops!
