Everyone knows summer in North Carolina can get a little….toasty. If you are looking for a way to escape the sweltering, afternoon heat, we’ve got the perfect remedy: head on down to one of our favorite, locally grown businesses, Locopops, for a delightfully suprising, gourmet popsicle.
What is so great about a popsicle you ask? With flavors like Mango Chile, Mexican Chocolate, Mojito and Pomegranate Tangerine, the real question to ask is: Why didn’t I know about this sooner??
Locopops was started in Durham, North Carolina in 2005 with the goal of bringing Mexican inspired, gourmet popsicles to the Triangle. Though the favorite flavors regularly grace the menu, guest stars rotate almost daily. Pop in for a treat and you may find flavors like Grapefruit Mint, Tangerine Passionfruit, Lemon Thyme or Chocolate Bacon! Five years after Locopops first opened its doors, business is still booming, now in four different locations in the triangle.
We hope you have the chance to taste a few flavors of the world, right in our own neighborhood.
