Reopens Wednesday, 2/1/06!
Yes, we're back from vacation and reopening with flair! We've got a great menu with lots of favorites and some new twists. See below for the nitty-gritty (* indicates a new flavor).
Paletas de Agua (water-based):
Momo (a french mojito with lime, mint and Chambord)*
Plum Black Currant*
Spicy Apple Hazelnut (with black and white peppercorns)*
Mango with Chile
Paletas de Crema (cream-based):
White Chocolate Almond Kirsch*
Clementine Thyme Mint*
Thai Rice Pudding (with vanilla, cinnamon, coconut milk & lemongrass)*
Strawberries & Cream
Cookies & Cream
Nana & Nilla
Chocolate Malted Milkball Crunch
Also, if anyone knows a school art teacher interested in a place to display students' work, let us know. Displaying kids' art at the shop is the brain child of Nancy Hamilton, who brought the Japanese scrolls of her students at Club Blvd Magnet School to Locopops. The show was quite a hit with lots of customer comments, and we'd like to make rotating kids' art a tradition, if possible.
Hope to see you soon!

I see myself with a Peppermint in one hand, and a Mexican Chocolate in the other, and when both those are gone, maybe a couple more.
Yay Loco Pops!!
Why the $#%@ can't I find a place like Locopops here in LA? I know ten places to eat goat, should the urge ever strike, but I can't find something fun like Locopops. The closest I've been able to come is the ice cream truck in the neighborhood park, that has a kinda interesting tamarind-chili pop (I have that when Nell gets something fluorescent and shaped like Spongebob--she'll get taste eventually, right??). And now they're displaying school art?? Man, I miss Durham sometimes.
oooh, wednesday is my afternoon off--i may have to trek to durham!
I think a momo for mama is in order tomorrow. And I may have to have the Thai rice pudding.
i went to locopops tonight. the first thing i tried was the spiced apple hazlenut with cracked peppercorn. a *very* complex taste, but very good. the black pepper was actually spicy. it was quite unusual and quite delicious.
then i tried the clementine thyme (which summer said was her current favorite). it tasted like a creamsicle... i couldn't really taste the thyme, but perhaps that's just because my mouth was reeling from the black pepper in the last pop.
i think i'll go back tomorrow and try the lemon curd and the momo.
Please tell Loco Pops that those folks who came in every day for two weeks just before moving to Atlanta last summer still remember them fondly, and miss them dearly.
I've had the guava mint, the Mexican chocolate, and two other flavors: avocado and mango/coconut/basil. I was particularly yummied by the guava mint and the basil/mango/coconut (really, basil should be the first ingredient). Not at all heavy like I thought, having confused myself with the heaviness of pesto (which comes, of course, from the oil).
So, do you guys cater??? Your pops are the best and would be wonderful at my wedding.
locopops can be reached at this address:
they do cater.
Does anyone know where you can get something similar to loco pops in Chicago? I'm looking for a cucumber popsicle.
