NOW OPEN: Chill out with ‘Peace, Love & Pops’ on Main Gate Square (MENU)

"making a difference one delicious popsicle at a time."

There’s a new popsicle stand on Main Gate Square (perfect timing, too).

Peace, Love & Pops is the name and the brother-in-laws Scott Harrison and Jim Roberts are the minds behind the new popsicle shop that is now open at 845 E. University Blvd.

The new spot has opened its doors in the former Sonoran Cycles space, which has been transformed into a nifty seating area that’ll for sure be a cool hangout during the scorching summer months.

There are plenty of “far out flavors” available in the shop, which are categorized as Juice Based, Cream Based, and Pup-Sicles (pooches need to cool down, too).

“Our goal is freshness and to have our ingredients as locally sourced as possible,” said Harrison.

The idea of opening up Peace, Love & Pops here in Tucson was inspired by an experience they had at a similar popsicle shop in Birmingham, Alabama.

“My wife and I lived in Birmingham from 2013 until January of 2021 and then moved to Tucson to be closer to her family,” said Harrison. “B’ham is a great food city with many talented chefs and cooks. As a result, there are also a lot of great, complimentary shops around town for desserts and other treats. My partner, Jim, is also my brother-in-law (we married sisters), and on a trip out to Alabama we took them to a local popsicle shop and they loved it.”
