2019 Fort Worth Open Streets Recap!

The 2019 Open Streets event in the Near Southside District of Fort Worth happened this past Sunday! Magnolia Avenue was closed to cars to allow for dozens of local businesses to pop up on the street and serve the community.

According to the Near Southside website, “Open Streets is a national movement with more than 90 documented initiatives in North America. Open streets events are increasingly common in cities seeking innovative ways to achieve environmental, social, economic, and public health goals by temporarily closing streets to automobile traffic, so that people may use them for walking, bicycling, dancing, playing, and socializing”.

This four hour event drew in hundreds of locals from the DFW area! The “Open Streets” allow for one half of the road to be for rollers, strollers, and more. From rollerbladers, to skateboarders, to bicyclists, and more… the event encourages people to get out and explore the community.

The other half is open to local businesses. Some of our local business friends were also at the event including Leaves Book and Tea Shop, Stir Crazy Baked Goods, and others! This year, Alchemy Pops served delicious frozen treats outside Avoca Coffee! Thank you to those who popped by the cart, we sold out!

Art Walk at the Pop Shop - True Worth Place

Third Thursday is back! This casual art walk is planned for the Third Thursday of the month in the Southside neighborhoods of Fort Worth from 6-9pm. Grab your family and friends and walk, bike, or carpool around to check out some awesome local art at different locations and get some drinks and snacks along the way!


This month, Alchemy Pops partnered with True Worth Place. According to the True Worth website, “[we] bring a host of services together and provide shelter during the day in a compassionate and welcoming environment. We serve anyone who needs us, whether staying at any of our community’s night shelters or living on the streets. And we’re more than a place to spend the day – we’re a resource center providing a variety of crucial tools designed to help end the cycle of homelessness – all under one roof”.

3 Sweet Dessert Trends

Sweet Memories

Floral Flavors

Floral accents are a great way to add naturally-derived flavors to your food and drinks. The flavors are fresh and light, yet sweet! Some current floral flavor trends include hibiscus, orange blossom and rose water. What exactly does hibiscus taste like? It tastes similarly to berries with a hint of lemony-tartness. It’s a delicious low-calorie and vegan/dairy free option available in the Pop Shop!

Turn Up The Heat!

Some people are looking for something out-of-the-box and exotic. Restaurants are filling this need by incorporating heat and spice into their menu items. Some items include Harissa - a North African sauce, Chamoy - a sweet-and-sour Mexican fruit-based condiment, and other unique spices. At Alchemy Pops, we are in the spirit of cooling you down with our version of heat. Our Mexican Hot Chocolate pop is sweetened with cane sugar and spiced with Cayenne pepper to give it an extra kick! It’s vegan and dairy free, but incredibly fudgy due to the added dates and coconut milk!
