BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- A new dessert bar has opened in Bowling Green, but it might not be what you'd typically consider dessert.

Jesus Puga opened Tropix Fresh Fruit & More a few weeks ago.

The store features options for fruit cups, smoothies, Italian ice and other creative menu options.

Puga says he grew up in Bowling Green and noticed there just aren't enough healthy options.

"Well, I just see that there's a lot of obesity and there's a lot of fast food chains that don't really offer any type of healthy options for customers that try to watch their weight or try to stay fit," he said.

Puga says another unique thing about the new business is the fruit is all fresh -- never frozen.

The grand opening for Tropix will be next Saturday at the store on Veterans Memorial across from Walmart. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
