Eat This: Mama D’s Italian Ice (and Popsicles)

Posted by Holly Whitfield | July 18th 2013 2442 0

This is a hibiscus mint popsicle from Mama D's Italian ice, and it's the only thing that's made me even remotely ok with how disgustingly hot it is outside.


Though the menu on her website has an impressive list of popsicle and Italian ice flavors, she only brings a selection of each to her farmers market booths. I can personally vouch for the deliciousness of the creamy chocolate sea salt popsicle, and I'm now planning to stop by the booth every time I'm at a farmers market in the hopes that the universe is smiling upon me and Mama D is selling her Arnold Palmer popsicles.


I haven't tried the Italian Ice yet, but all of the kids in line at the Botanic Gardens market yesterday seemed to be pretty excited about it.

You can pick up Mama D's at a ton of area farmers markets (including the Memphis Farmers Market downtown) or you can order them via her website.

    Her Italian Ice is amazing! You can also get it at High Point Pizza.

    My kids and I are huge fans of Mama D's Italian Ice!  I have not yet tried a flavor of her Italian ice that I didn't like.  I also really like the salted chocolate pops.  Might I just add that Mama D herself could not possibly be any nicer, either.

    Mama D will be a vendor at this year’s Big Scoop Ice Cream Festival, benefiting Ronald McDonald House of Memphis 🙂 Save the date! Saturday, September 28th at AutoZone Park!
