There sure are lots of sweets on a stick these days. Not long ago Starbucks rolled out Cake Pops, and Frost Doughnuts unveiled something similar (“All of the flavor you love in FROST doughnuts, in a pop!”). Not surprisingly, it was those of the latter, with its peanut butter and red velvet cake varieties, that were met with more fanfare.

Art Restaurant is revamping the push-up, giving the childhood favorite a gourmet treatment. And now Molly Moon Neitzel is sticking it to sorbet. When her Madrona micro-shop opens May 24 inside the laundromat at 1408 34th Avenue, Neitzel will stock seasonal “Mollypops” made with sorbet. The first flavor up: strawberry rhubarb.
