Now that Montreal has officially begun to see summer, it's time to start cooling ourselves down with some cold and tasty snacks. And, what's more refreshing than a popsicle on a hot summer day? There are some cool spots in Montreal that make popsicles that are more than just your regular, gas station ones — not that there's anything wrong with an 89 cent banana popsicle, of course.
