Who would think to pair mangos and chilies, and freeze them on a stick? Or create a mojito popsicle and offer it alongside one with a strawberries and cream flavor? Locopops, that’s who. This weekend, thanks to my very hip sister-in-law, I discovered the coolest (get it?) popsicle store in town, just in time for the summer heat!
In addition to regular and featured flavors, the Locopops website has a way for folks to suggest flavors, and that got me thinking. What would I suggest? Watermelon and cilantro? Pineapple punch? Peanut butter chocolate?
While Locopops only has three locations in the Triangle area, I’m hoping it’ll grow. I love the store’s philosophy. They use locally produced cream and herbs, fresh fruit – only the best ingredients, according to their website and my taste buds. Seriously, I could taste the difference! They don’t use artificial colors or corn syrup, either.
So what flavor of popsicle would you create to sample? Or would you stick with a traditionally flavored favorite?
