Lauded as 2010’s best ice cream shop in Parents & Kids magazine, Bop's family-friendly ambiance sates whole households of sweets-craving customers with traditional frozen custard. The desserterie’s menu swirls a smorgasbord of custard-based treats whipped from high-quality butter fat and egg and crownable with 30 toppings. The Snappy Turtle sundae fills mouths with hot fudge, caramel, and roasted pecans, topped with whipped cream and a cherry. Bop's concretes ($4.79 for a large)—custard so thick it can flip upside down or serve as a home’s foundation without incident—come in varieties that include the cheesecake- and raspberry-topped Amazin' Grace and the Hawaiian Crunch, which hula-dances a helping of strawberries, roasted pecans, and pineapples into a heaping mound of Bop's custard. Bop's also scoops its signature custard into cups and cones ($1.79–$2.99), build-your-own sundaes ($3.19–$3.79), and coffee-inspired drinks ($3.99). For those quelling sustenance cravings, Bop’s lineup of distinctive non-frozen fare includes the kaiser-bun-snuggled chili cheeseburger ($5.95) and the chicken-salad salad, which lands Bop's homemade chicken salad on a bed of crisp lettuce ($5.49).
Sundae parties cart Bop's to the site of a corporate or private get-together, toting vanilla frozen custard and your choice of six toppings for 30 guests. Bop's employees arrive at the appointed time, festooning party spaces with balloons and laying out napkins, cups, and spoons. Party-goers savor sundaes, hand-prepared by Bop's staff members as they encourage attendees to crown their custards with one or more of the on-tap toppings and gourmet syrups, which may include almond-mocha syrup, snickers pieces, pralines, or souvenir meteorite chunks.
Bop's Frozen Custard
At Bop's Frozen Custard, sweets specialists whip up cold desserts in the same way that vendors did under the carnival lights of Coney Island in 1919. With fewer tiny air bubbles than traditional ice cream and a serving temperature of 26 degrees, frozen custard provides a dessert experience that’s as smooth and rich as John D. Rockefeller swimming in an olive-oil pool. The dessert artists design specialties such as frozen-custard turtle sundaes with fudge, caramel, and pecans and super-thick concrete shakes packed with loads of fruits and candies.
