You may wonder who the popsicle man is on the corner of 14th Avenue and 21st Street in front of the Pocahontas Apartments. He is Michael Haggerty, owner of Hero Pops.

Hero Pops are handmade frozen popsicles that contain organic and conventional ingredients, including seasonal flavors such as berry, watermelon agave, spinach, mango, pineapple ginger, coconut lemongrass, chocolate almond sea salt and chocolate pretzel. The frozen specialties are handmade locally in a kitchen at 2121 14th Avenue. Michael sells his pops from a pushcart Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., and at the Downtown Farmer’s Market Fridays from 3 to 6 p.m. Hero Pops are also available for parties, corporate events and street festivals.
