Meet the CEO, Steven Carse, and learn the story of these famous frozen pops and what has made them so successful in Atlanta and beyond.

King of Pops is a line of frozen pops inspired by the South American fruit 'paletas', which are made with natural ingredients and no preservatives. That makes our product shelf lives shorter, but it's worth it! All our pops are eaten and sold very fresh. We use as many local products as we can find available and as many organic ingredients as possible. We partner with local producers to get the highest quality ingredients, such as Southern Swiss Dairy, who makes a special mix of milk and cream just for us. We recently acquired a farm, which will be providing us with herbs and fruits to meet with our high standard of quality. We're are very proud of our product, but we never settle.

HONEYSUCKLE GELATO: Cacao Cafe in Virginia Highlands 1046 North Highland Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30306

This local favorite treat started small and will be opening their first store front in the new Ponce City Market in September 2015.


At Honeysuckle Gelato we combine the rich and smooth texture of gelato with the decadent flavors and desserts of the South. Each ounce of our gelato and sorbet is made from scratch in Atlanta using the finest and freshest local ingredients. Whenever an ingredient is not available locally we search the globe in order to bring the most unique and delicious flavors to our customers. For our sorbets, we focus on seasonal offerings and use only real fruit in our kitchen.

Our philosophy at Honeysuckle is that no matter how delicious a particular flavor of gelato, it's merely a single component of a dessert. For that reason, each serving you order from us at our retail location will offer at least three elements in it. We've done our best to provide a selection of gelato, baked goods, and toppings that will give you the opportunity to create some truly memorable desserts. We've listed some of our favorite combinations, but we're more excited about what you will come up with. Whether you indulge in a cup of our hand-scooped gelato, a gelato cookie sandwich, a milkshake or even just our handmade sea-salted caramel sauce, we assure you that Honeysuckle’s line of desserts is the perfect treat anytime of day!

As we continue to grow, we stay committed to our vision of providing the perfect dessert for any occasion while setting the bar for quality and innovation. Be sure to stay tuned as new offerings are always in the making.

Enjoy. And Experiment.
