Posh Pops
I must admit, I've been intrigued by these patented pops since Adam Platt's review in NY Magazine. A whimsical invention from Chef David Burke of David Burke & Donatella, he serves the chocolate dipped cheesecake lollies with a side of bubble gum flavored whipped cream for dipping. The great news is they're available online at Neiman Marcus sans the cream of course. Aside from the fanciful array of delicious coatings, the best part about these has to be the portion friendly presentation.

Postmodern pops, sweet. I haven't had a lolly in years.
BTW, I'm going for the writer/illustrator career too. How did you get started in a competetive place like NYC? I guess I'll start with tamer ground like Boston...

It was all about getting out there and letting people know what you want to do. I took a college level journalism class in H.S. with a fabulous journalist named Joan Morgan. I ran into her years later and she gave me my first internship at a mag which ultimately led to a gig. I'm an advocate for surrounding yourself with people who are doing what you want to do, ask a million questions and be proactive so that you have something to show when opportunity knocks. Boston is just as good a city as any. Go for it!
