Birmingham's favorite new way to beat the heat (although they flock here in the dead of winter too) is Steel City Pops. Owner Jim Watkins partnered up with Dreamcakes Bakery owner Jan Moon to create unique popsicle flavors out of only the freshest available ingredients. Their menu changes daily, and with locations in Homewood, The Pantry's backyard, the Summit, and pop carts around town, ice cold refreshment is never too far away.
Additionally, SCP has partnered up with Neverthirst, a locally based non-profit. If you grab a bottle of water from their storefront, you are also helping to build wells in remote areas of Africa and India.
