People's Pops-NYC

-I saw it on TV but cant find the show
-Unique Sweets
Hidden away in the the Chelsea Market across from the Tuck Shop  this spot was a welcome reprieve from the humid hot weather. Everything is made fresh with real fruit. They feature unique rotating flavors each day. Yesterday it was Apricot Jasmine, Roasted Red Plum, Yellow Plum Shredded Mint, and Cantaloupe Ginger. I had the watermelon basil and it was a mellow flavor that surprisingly worked well together. Had bits of fruit throughout. They also have shaved ice. Like real deal shaved by hand from a huge block in front of you. It was watermelon yesterday. Cost for a pop is $3.50 and shaved ice was $2.50. Not too horrible as they are a small business trying to survive in this overpriced city. Also, they are a good choice if you are watching your sugar intake. Made from natural ingredients. They have stands all over the city so watch out for them. So refreshing on a hot day.

-United Tastes of America
Ruthy's is known for their crazy decorated cupcakes and pastries. They were on the Cooking Channel show United Tastes of America for their meatballs. Meatballs huh? Well Spaghetti and Meatball decorated cupcakes. Not real meatballs, just cupcakes that look like meatballs. Weird right? Well anyways stopped by in the Chelsea Market and boy was I disappointed. By far the worst cupcake I have ever ate. I cant even compare it to Walmart cupcakes because Walmarts are better. No joke. I'm totally convinced the cupcake was 2 weeks old. I would not stop here. Their cakes look crazy maybe even better then the Cake Boss. But looks aren't everything. At $5 a piece stay far away.

-The Best Thing I Ever Ate

You have probably seen RonnyBrook in your local market. You know, the $5 glass bottle of milk with the $1 deposit. Based in the Hudson Valley, RonnyBrook is known for having the best milk and even better chocolate milk and ice cream. When they wanted to open a store then went straight to the heart of Manhattan in the Chelsea Market. Being voted the best milkshake in Manhattan by Serious Eats and the NY Times, RonnyBrook has taken NY by storm. With milkshakes like Chocolate Orange Peel, Pumpkin Pie Creme Brulee, or Apple pie to name a few your taste buds are in for a treat. I grabbed a Pumpkin Pie milkshake $6.50 ouch! Welcome to Manhattan where everything costs more but tastes better. If you have ever had RonnyBrook chocolate milk then you know what my milkshake tasted like. Do yourself a favor and pick up some RonnyBrook milk and support your local farmer. Best MilkShakes around!!!!
