Best Foodie Shops in Starkville, MS

I've strolled these Starkville streets for nearly 6 years as a student turned resident. Before that I called Columbus my home for nearly 10 years. (Don't mind my age *crying laughing emoji*) *this blog thing really needs emjois* Those were the years of Starkville being a treat to visit because....well..the cool college kids were there. Now, Starkville is hitting my radar for totally different reasons. This place is starting to look like a super trendy town! Might I say a bit like a mini-Austin or Nashville! least Austin/Nashville INSPIRED. This might be a stretch for any of our Austin and Nashville natives, but hear me out!

My main love of those larger cities is the variety of food choices and food niches. <anyone else obsessed with food?!> You know what I'm talking about... the ice cream shops that sell flavors like lavender and bacon..

Well, recently Starkville has up'd their eatery game. No, we don't have lavender or goat cheese beet ice cream...which if FINE! I don't know if my little small town heart could handle it just yet! However, we are covering other fun treats that will be sure to peak your interest!


The Pop Porium, A gourmet popcorn and treat shop is sure to give you a surprise when you see what Rosa can do with popcorn! Our pick? Caramel Macchiato! It's was divine!! Complete with the retro glass coke bottles to really take you back in time!  





Frios, A gourmet popsicle shop. Who doesn't love a cold popsicle on a hot and humid Mississippi summer day?! Let's take it up a notch and throw a spin on the flavors! We loved the peach and also the salted caramel is heaven come to earth! There was one flavor I might have to work up to trying...Avocado and Lime! <Cinco De Mayo maybe??>
