Reviews: Pop's Old Fashioned Ice Cream, Old Town Alexandria

Whether you're young, or young at heart, if you are simply a fan of ice cream, Pop's Old Fashioned Ice Cream Shop is a great choice. The store is located down in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, about a block from the riverfront at 109 King St.

If you enjoy and seek the ambiance of an old-time ice cream parlor, Pop's fits the bill.  

Not only is the shop reflective of a time long gone by, but the on-premises made ice cream tastes good too. On occasion, you can even see employees making the ice cream.

Pop's has the standard flavors and then some variety of unique flavors. I've been looking for a peanut butter ice cream flavor that rivals the one I had in Walt Disney World several years ago. Never been able to find anything remotely close. Well...Pop's had it! 

The other flavors the family tried were all good too, and the kids were already planning the flavors they were going to order on the next time around in Alexandria. The sprinkled cones were a big hit.

We'd first stumbled upon Pop's sometime around 2008-09, and any time we are in Old Town, we typically pay another visit.

The entire family gives Pop's Old-Fashioned Ice Cream a big thumbs up. A terrific spot to stop off and indulge in a cone or a cup!
