If you’re exploring the edgier end of the Marigny or Bywater, nearby Meltdown ice pops come in standard and exotic flavors made from local ingredients (hand-picked berries, even). Daily flavors range from Vietnamese coffee and salted caramel (our personal favorite) to herb-inflected concoctions like pineapple cilantro and Ponchatoula strawberry basil, some with chunks of fruit. The straightforward fudgsicle, watermelon, or peanut butter are kid-pleasers. Ditto for grownups.
