From creatively designed cake pops to custom cookies to loaded pretzels and various chocolate confections, you’re sure to find a few of your favorite things at Pop Culture, which moved into 10 Purchase St., Suite 100, in early March.

“I’m getting a lot of good feedback, people walking in and saying ‘Wow, that is so cute, this is so awesome,’” she said of Pop Culture’s March 10 opening. “It went really well. I was really surprised.”
