Toppings Galore

What's ice cream without toppings? Hop-Jo understands this and provides a plethora of options to sprinkle on top of your chosen treat. From classic chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles to more unique choices like sour gummy worms and Andes Mint, the possibilities are endless.


Creating Your Perfect Treat

At Hop-Jo, the power is in your hands. You pick the flavors, you pick the toppings--it's as simple as mix, weigh, and pay. This approach not only allows for customization but also ensures that each visitor leaves with a creation that's perfectly tailored to their taste buds.

Four Things We Learned

There are 18 ice cream flavors and 40+ toppings to choose from.

There is a book at the cash register that list all the different allergy information in the ice cream and toppings. We didn't need this as my 13-year old daughter knows what she can have and what she can't have.

There are 21 toppings that are individually stored containers with serving spoons. This helps prevent cross-contamination.

There isn't a lot of seating at the Hop-Jo. If its a nice day, you can always walk down the street and checkout the starting line of the Boston Marathon - there is a nice park across the street.

This series of posts will cover some tips and tricks that I have learned about my twelve-year-old daughter's gluten-free lifestyle in the Boston area. Gluten-free eating can be challenging in any big city, but especially in Boston due to the high number of restaurants and availability of options. I've been learning what I can to make sure my daughter can still enjoy eating out, and I want to share what I've learned so that other families in the same situation can benefit.
