    The chocolate sea salt pop was excellent. The creaminess of the chocolate was accentuated by the salt but the salt wasn't overbearing. This hit the spot on a hot summer day.

    The King has caught the city's attention & earned a spot as the top 100 Dishes with its silky chocolate sea salt pop. Just make sure you don't start humming "Chocolate Salty Balls" while sucking it. Read more

    They can often be found at “the corner” of North Avenue and North Highland or the Atlanta Food Truck Park, Twitter has the location of the cart and its rainbow-striped umbrella. [Eater 38 Member]

    While the Chocolat Sea-Salt is my person fav, you can not go wrong with any flavour combination. They melt quick so remember to bring your own napkins : )

    Quite possibly the most famous (and delicious) guacamole and queso in the city. Meet your friends and go for the Three Amigos dip selection.

    Fresh, all natural frozen pops. Be sure to try the Banana Puddin', though you can't really go wrong no matter what flavor you choose.

    Even though you can grab their pops at every festival and in some stores, it’s still worth a trip to the corner where it all started.
