#Indianapolis – Over the past week I’ve heard people say countless times “have you tried that popsicle place in Broad Ripple?” After the fifth person asked if I had tried “this popsicle place”, known as Nicey Treat, it had my attention and me wondering why so many people were raving about it.
Nicey Treat opened its Broad Ripple location in May 2014 and is the brainchild of Jeff Patrick, co-owner of the all-natural ingredient popsicle establishment. Before there was a Nicey Treat location in Broad Ripple you may have seen these popsicles sold via bicycle cart.
Nicey Treat uses natural ingredients to produce its popsicles. Sourcing its milk used in its popsicles from the local Traders Point Creamery and chocolate from Guittard located in San Francisco, CA, Nicey Treat aims for the best ingredients to produce its frozen treat.
My first popsicle is the Toasted Coconut Cream. Nicey Treat serves two different types of popsicles: a milk-based posicle and a juice-based popsicle. Toasted Coconut Cream is a milk based popsicle and it’s obvious upon first bite – or lick depending on your popsicle eating style.
Soft, it has a rich-warm taste which comes from quality dairy and has the sweet taste of coconut. It’s a delightful treat and I understand immediately why people were raving about this “popsicle place in Broad Ripple.”
Each bite I take of the frozen treat was as good as the last, it has me reminiscing over summer days as a child eating popsicles to beat the heat. Simply put, one popsicle had me wanting more and the frozen delight hit the spot. Not too sweet, Toasted Coconut Cream gives you just enough to not overpower your taste buds while delivering a satisfying amount of sweet for that sweet tooth of yours.
I was left with only a popsicle stick and an appetite for another popsicle so I head over to Nicey Treat’s popsicle board conveniently located in the shop: I settle on Pink Lemonade.
Perfectly tart, I’m blown away by pleasant sting of sour which attacks my taste buds. Pink Lemonade is a juice-based popsicle and it’s differences are felt immediately. While a milk-based popsicle give off a soft texture from beginning to end the juice-based popsicles have a crunch at first but find themselves serving a soft texture after the initial bite is taken.
Pink Lemonade is a popsicle that would be perfect for that hot day with no clouds for miles.
Pink Lemonade is one of Nicey Treats most popular popsicles and for good reason. It’s a go-to-popsicle for any newcomers to Nicey Treat, the juice produced from the popsicle will have you salivating and wanting that next bite.
If you haven’t gone to “that popsicle place in Broad Ripple” yet I highly recommend a pit stop whenever you’re near Broad Ripple Village. It’s a perfect local product to cleanse your palate or beat a hot day. Plus, if you’re a frequent visitor and save 10 popsicle sticks you can bring them into Nicey Treat and they’ll reward you with a free frozen treat.
