ST. LOUIS — The long-awaited ice pop truck from Kaylen Wissinger, owner of Whisk, is hitting St. Louis streets. Poptimism features popsicles made using seasonal, hyper-local ingredients, Wissinger said in a statement.
"We've been dreaming about this since 2012, when that first strawberry lemon ice pop was made in our home freezer in Tower Grove South," Wissinger said.
Since that time, Wissinger opened her bakeshop storefront, called Whisk, on Cherokee Street, and she has been selling ice pops at the Tower Grove Farmers' Market every Saturday.
After several years of selling out of the popsicles every week, she decided it was time to upgrade production, she said.
"We wish we had the truck ready to go earlier this year, but honestly, the timing is great right now," Wissinger said. "Some of the best summer flavors are on deck — peach basil, watermelon, sweet corn, concord grape, blackberry goat cheese, blueberries and cream — there's just so many."
Wissinger purchased a 1984 AM General postal truck last summer and has been repairing it for the past year.
