Icicle Treats is run by Erin Kennedy. She makes the homemade popsicles using as many local and organic ingredients as possible. She also mentioned that she never adds sugar - only agave nectar when a little bit of extra sweetness is absolutely necessary. I overheard her saying she simply throws the ingredients into the blender and the resulting puree makes up the pops. The business is run out of the catering kitchen of The Red Apron on Gladstone here in Ottawa. Besides the vending carts, the pops are also available for sale at The Red Apron and Thyme & Again on Wellington in Wellington West for $3.00 each.

This was really tasty and refreshing. The prefect treat for a hot summer day. The pineapple was still chunky enough that I could still tell there was real fruit in there. I'm definitely going to have to make the effort to go back to Thyme & Again or track down the cart to try another flavor. I'm really glad to see a local business getting off the ground. I really hope they continue to do well. Track them down and try them out!
