Cool Down with Irie Pops

Summer is for beach days and vacation. It’s for living outside at your Destination St. John villa and soaking up sunshine at the beach or at your St. John villa pool. It’s also hot, and popsicles and fun summer drinks are always a great way to cool down. Enter: Irie Pops. This fun popsicle company recently “popped” up in St. John and it’s the perfect way to unwind, cool down and feel the Irie summer island vibes.

The passion project of Laura + William, these once-tourists now-residents have created a fun island business selling fresh, homemade pops to tourists and locals alike. You can find their mobile cooler cart and colorful umbrella most often in the park across from the ferry dock in Cruz Bay, but they also like to make their way to beaches and other spots around the island.

Now to the popsicles – these gourmet treats feature fun tropical flavors like Cucumber/Coconut/Lime and Basil/Berry, Mango Creamsicle and Papaya Punch.  For adults, Irie Pops also has vacation-approved “boozy pops” like Rum Punch and of course, The Painkiller.

Other island treats that we love include TripAdvisor favorites Columbo and St. John Scoops or a Bushwhacker at Joe’s Rum Hut
