I always enjoy coming here. This pop bar in the mall was very convenient and had all the flavors I've come to love about pot bar. But the staff seems a little perturbed and tired, maybe just be a casual Friday. I definitely definitely recommend going to this place for a sweet snack. I enjoyed an orange Creamsicle. The sweet flavor jumped off the page and I enjoyed it. In all things considered, it was relatively really cheap. Service: B Flavor: B+ Wait time: A

Disappointed with this location. Didn’t have all the flavors as I usually get green tea at other location. The little girl taking the orders last weekend had such a POOR attitude. Very unfriendly and rushed the order. Was rude and short when asked question. Surprised the owner hired such an employee when most dessert shops like these have such friendly workers. On the plus side, the cashier was more pleasant.

Love the concept and taste but this location had worst service of any Popbar. Girl taking the order had attitude and very unfriendly. Obvious she hates her job. Did a sloppy job with dipping and toppings also. It's a shame if the owners don't know. Bad service hurts the business. Will not return to this location.

Good ice cram flavors and toppings

really lame service from the female employee around 5pm today...seems like she hates her job, also service area could be cleaner. I've had better experiences from this location but today sucked. 2 stars only for good product. bought 4 popsicles and all the flavors were good. mediocre dipping/coating job (again, lame service) but consistent taste in product.

Cool spot with some great popsicle sticks. Located within the Hangar at LBX which is a nice spot to sit down and have an ice cream. The only reason I am knocking off one star is because these things are expensive for the relatively small amount of popsicle stick you actually get. The popsicle sticks are very small for $5 and although it's only an extra 50 cents to get toppings you pay 5.50 for a few bites of popsicle stick.

My girlfriend's green tea pop had bits of paper all throughout the inside, it was inedible and had to be thrown away.

So totally meh...😐

It's delicious, but they cut a bunch of flavors and they are understaffed, the only girl working there is always in the back kitchen. She must be overloaded with stuff to do. I can't get my favorite flavor, it's never available, too bad!

I did not find my chocolate covered strawberry popsicle special in the slightest for $4.50. The ones you get at the gas station for $.99 taste better IMO. I was a bit disappointed after the good reviews here on Yelp. I definitely make better at home. The triple layer ones from Trader Joe's that come in a box of 4 for $1.99 are far superior. Go elsewhere for your dessert.

Such a "cool" concept, the flavours and topping options are amazing!

Jennifer M.

Delicious ! Only complaint is that they're super expensive . Three bars cost $15! That's a lot for an arguably small gelato bar. We ordered chocolate, strawberry and vanilla dipped in milk chocolate with chocolate sprinkles. They were all really good.

I've always wanted to try a pop bar since coming to LA. Their gelato bars are very soft and almost chewy. Chocolate green tea was like a nice rich green tea flavor with brownie bits inside. The passion fruit was tart and sorbet on a stick. It was nice. But it was gone too fast.

Popbar is a popsicle and shake shop located in Del Amo Mall. 4 stars because it was good, not amazing and a bit overpriced for a popsicle. Fun concept though: you can choose your popsicle flavor, dip it, and add toppings. I got a strawberry popsicle dipped in chocolate and yogurt. It was enjoyable and instagram perfect.

Pop bar The popsicles at pop bar are kinda creamy and are like ice cream. I ordered the green tea pop with chocolate sauce and it tasted like a green tea kit kat in popsicle form it had a good amount of green tea flavor and the chocolate sauce turned into a chocolate solid shell. Another thing that surprised me was the popsicle never dripped on the floor at all not even once when it started to melt. Pop bar also serves milkshakes and you can dip your popsicle in different kind of sauce and toppings as well.

PopBar Yes! Especially to all my Pistachio Lovers! When I get my sweet tooth craving this is where I am simply headed. My husband is not much of a sweet tooth type person but his eye went in connection with their shakes that they have. Shakes taste great but I'm more towards the Pops so refreshing and with the selection chocolate and toppings yum. So excited they are opening one up at the Long Beach Xchange. Can't wait!! It's a must have to try if you haven't had one!!

Tamika R.

Over priced popsicles. You can kind of say it might be worth it only if you get it with chocolate and nuts. Not to mention, I always come into the mall before they open and the counter is constanly a mess. They dont clean up at night. Very unsanitary.

Sarah L.

Quick takes: Service: good Atmosphere: mall pop-up Food: SUPER sweet (even with a sweet tooth) The cashier was patient to explain how to build a popbar and what flavor combinations were popular/aesthetic. Only downside is that all the toppings make the popbar TOO sweet, like eating pure sugar. I would have preferred the bar better by itself? Overall, a good experience but I wouldn't go back because of how sugary the dessert is (and with no toppings there's no point really).

1) it's overpriced ice cream / milkshakes 2) employees will scam you for the prices $ 3) staff needs BETTER ATTITUDE and to learn to SMILE 4) don't get me wrong it's good but not worth it Tonight I went to try it out with my boyfriend and one of the girls with brown / reddish hair (had a low pony tail) had horrible attitude she saw us and huffed and puffed and rolled her eyes at us.

Janet L.

Pretty good, but nothing exceptional. A little pricey for what it is. The chocolate dip is straight up chocolate and a little too sweet of an addition for my liking. However, there's not a lot of these ice cream pop kind of shops around so still happy there's one here.

Ben Z.

Pop bar is pretty cool, they have a lot of different variety of popsicles and I find it pretty unique. Its a bit sweet in my opinion but the popsicles sure do look good in picture!

This location has gone down in quality and customer service. I've been here before a few times throughout the years they have opened and my experience has never been this bad. I was there a quarter 'til noon on a Saturday and it was all quiet at the store front. The lady at the register looked like I was bothering her with my order. I decided to just get a simple, undipped bar for my toddler and get the heck outta there. I didn't feel welcome at all. There are definitely other "frosty" treat stores that are much better in value as well as customer service (some other reviews have mentioned them), so don't bother with Popbar.

This was an interesting place. If you're looking for a cool refreshment, this will suffice. They can dip your flavored popsicle in chocolate and then sprinkle toppings on it. I personally wasn't that impressed but my wife and daughter liked it.

Sophia A.

Didn't care for this place. I tried it out and paid about $5 for a pistachio bar dipped in white chocolate. Overpriced and overrated. I would recommend frostbites instead which is located on the other side of the mall next to AMC. Better service, quality and better prices than Popbar. I just wasn't wowed. I ended up going to target and purchasing Ben & Jerry's ice cream to satisfy my craving.

Christina M.

This place has a scam going where they have menu prices but charge you $3 more for certain items claiming that the menu has changed but they didn't update the listed prices yet. They just hope they can charge you extra and you won't notice! That is illegal! Also what sane person would pay $7 for a mall shake??? I argued with them to cancel my order and get my money back. Nice try!

First time here today, and the pops were delicious! They have a variety of fruit or milk bars, then chocolate coatings and toppings to choose from. The kids loved it! It makes a great treat for the whole family, seems like a popular spot here! Wish we had one in our home town!

Chris A.

Its popbar...I like the banana the best with dark chocolate and almonds...the young lady working here was very nice and service was fast at 145pm.

Aimee A.

These are pretty tasty and you can customize to your preference. I like the pistachio. This time I tried the rose water which was vanilla with hint of rose but I mainly tasted vanilla. Fun option in the remodeled part of Del Amo mall.

Mind-boggling combinations of popsicles, dips, flavors, and more... Absolutely delicious

[Review #302] 2018 Yelp 100 Challenge (70/100) After lunch with my colleague/friend, we went to Popbar for some dessert & to cleanse our palate (our somewhat greasy lunch at DTF upstairs). Popbar has been on the back burner for awhile for various reasons & we're usually don't traipse over to the newer side of Del Amo Mall. After surveying the various flavors, we picked: Strawberry Popbar 1/2 Dipped Milk Chocolate w/Sprinkles (for H), Green Tea Popbar 1/2 Dipped Dark Chocolate (for my friend), & Kiwi Popbar (for me). I kept it simple to enjoy the kiwi popsorbetto without the dippings & toppings to overwhelm its flavor/taste; the customer before us had the same idea her Lemon Popbar. =) Since they were in sticks, I don't think sample tastings were available nor were they offered. Luckily, the Popbars were tasty. Though I wish I had noticed their POPular combinations menu first... I wanted to try Yogurt Berry Crunch because it looks like my favorite childhood (strawberry shortcake) ice cream. :-| Both H & my friend enjoyed their Popbars as did I. However, for their prices, it's not a good value even worse when you add on unlimited dippings & toppings, or turning the Popbar into a popWich (think ice cream sandwich). I personally think the extras masks the gelato's flavor, especially the fruit flavor ones. The chocolate complemented the green tea gelato. I agree with fellow Yelper, Jane A., it's overkill which was why I kept mine pure & simple. Is Popbar's gelato or sorbetto better than other handcrafted gelato shops? No. By serving their gelato in a new way - on a stick - premium pricing is tagged for these "pop"sicles. I can get twice the amount of gelato in scoop form for similar pricing. While the dippings & toppings are only 50¢, I don't see a need to dip or top with more than 1 item each without overwhelming the Popbar. A more perceived value would be to offer a complimentary dipping or topping which would encourage customers to pay for the other, or offer both up for free (hint, hint). Good flavor, decent service, but not worth the $$ for this so-called "personalized & memorable experience." With this pricing & somewhat hidden location, I wonder how much longer this shop would survive in the competitive environment (luxury wing) at Del Amo Mall.

I liked it very much . Natural taste of fruit bars

A pretty cool concept of designing your own little ice cream bar with quick service and reasonable prices. It's pretty simple, pick the ice cream pop you want or sherbet depending on your taste buds for that day ($4). I got green tea since it was a flavor you couldn't dip the bar in! I came in towards the evening and they didn't have as much selection so if you want a larger selection come in earlier! Then, proceed to choose the different dippings or drizzles or both ($.50 for unlimited)! You can get either a full dipping or any other variation you'd like. I got half and then proceeded with pistachio and waffle toppings ($.50 for unlimited). Then, I finished it up with some white chocolate drizzle over the whole bar. The ice cream bar itself was delicious with the chocolate dipping not falling apart when you bit into it which was my fear. Thankfully it didn't and they give you a little mini paper tray to make sure you don't make a mess! So drop on by, design you popbar, and stroll through mall enjoying a tasty treat :)

Re H.

What in the world?! People are so clever. Paper Patti and I were out and about one day and she mentions she would like to try this place. Okay, I'm game. Pick a pop. Would you like a dip or drizzle? Or both? Now.....what about a dunk? I thought it's a fancy popsicle right? Wrong!!! It's a Magical Pop that delights every taste bud. Makes you think about returning and getting another before you've even finished..... before you have even taken your next bite. It makes you excitingly create and sing unrehearsed theme songs to it on your next visit because you're so excited. Yep, I really did all that. My choice: Pistachio Pop, dipped in dark chocolate and coated with waffle bits. Heaven on a stick I tell you. Got the same one twice. It's not really a popsicle, but a perfectly shaped gelato or sorbet that is reminiscent of a popsicle shape. Lots of choices.....just go....get there..... make up a song about them..... On a side note, our second trip was after a big meal in which my oldest son wanted to go straight home. I requested "Pop Pop" from Paper and she started driving there.....that's when the song started, he kept saying "where the bleep are we going?!" A sort of frenzy occurred as I began singing, then my youngest boy joined in, with Paper picking up at the second chorus... #1 was a dud and didn't even get one......but I did..... And that's all that matters.

I love Popbar...but, I was really bummed that the Torrance location did not have the sheet with reccommendations of pairings. Also, the counter looked so unappealing: it was messy, there was no attractive centerpiece of their product, and it was so plain! Otherwise, my popbar was very yummy.
