Frozen Assets: Where to Find Popsicles on Wheels

Culinary Cruisersâ€™ aluminum freezer bikes arenâ€™t exactly easy to maneuver, laden, as they are, with a clutch of popsicles and a few chunks of dry ice. But almost every day, three pedal-powered delivery vehiclesâ€”like the one Josh Danoff is pictured with above, special-ordered from a manufacturer in Portland, Oregonâ€”depart the companyâ€™s Somerville headquarters and make for the Greenway, Dewey Square, and other area farmersâ€™ markets to sell $3 ice pops.
Culinary Cruisers was founded by Danoff, his sister Leah, and their friend Jennifer Johnsrud to vend local products like Charlestown-based Spindrift Soda. When Josh discovered that no one was making frozen treats around here, he created Ocean Ave Pops, whipping up flavors like banana-chocolate, ginger-grapefruit with mint, watermelon-blueberry-basil, and strawberry. â€śIt is really impossible to not be in a good mood and eat a pop at the same time,â€ť he says. â€śIt just canâ€™t happen.â€ť
