The North Market Pop Shop is a great shopping spot year round, but their holiday flavors are especially fun. Read along with this twist on a classic Christmas story for some of the top ice cream and soda pairings the shop has to offer!

‘Twas the holiday season & all through the shop
People pondered which ice cream to pair with their pop
But with so many sodas—400 in fact—
It can be hard to decide on the perfect snack.


So we compiled a list we’re excited to share
To brighten and spice up your holiday fare
Creamy & dreamy, festive and sweet
Let the Pop Shop guide you to your next favorite treat!

There’s nothing more classic than coffee & cake
It’s the pep in your step, the whip on your shake
So if the holiday bustle makes your stamina slip
Pair Gooey Butter Cake soda with Mocha Chip

Holiday Jingle Juice and Elf Elixer soda bottles at North Market Pop Shop

If you dig juicy sodas with big fruity taste

And love even more in a Jingle Juice float


Elf Elixir, also, deserves lip-smacking love
For boosting Strawberry ice cream when poured from above
Lemon, lime, & berries abound!
Could this be a new holiday favorite you’ve found?

That’s just a few, we have lots more to offer
