LocoPops coming to Chapel Hill

  • b

The Chapel Hill News had a blurb about LocoPops opening a second location in The Courtyard on West Franklin St. I was at the Durham location yesterday and the lady working said they are shooting to open in mid March. By the way, the buttermilk honey and chai pops I had were sublime and the boys enjoyed their white chocolate peppermint stick, carmel, and strawberry rosewater.

Between TJ and Locopops coming to Chapel Hill we are in for some treats!

  1. Is this the same location as Sandwhich/3 Cups and behind Penang?

    1. Yes, this is the same location. 3Cups and Sandwhich staff have really been talking this up... can't say that I blame them!

      1. Are they vegetarian ?
        if so excellent!!

        1. re: Rory

          Vegetarian? They're popscicles. They have two varieties: cream-based and water-based. My family prefers the cream-based. I haven't seen any meat-flavored LocoPops.

          My wife loves the white chocolate peppermint.

            The Mexican chocolate one is delicious!

        2. Loco Pops in Chapel Hill--what great news for vegetarian and carnivorous popsicle fans, alike (:P). They're really doing neat things in that Courtyard.

          With tongue in cheek, I must say: I told you so. In my August column on popsicles, I reported that Locopops planned to open a Chapel Hill shop: http://www.chapelhillnews.com/112/sto...
          (you'll find more popsicle content here: http://forkandspoonblog.blogspot.com/...

          )

          Obviously, as this new blurb states, Locopops is moving ahead with those plans. West Franklin sure is taking shape--now if we can only trade the soon-to-be Chipotle for a real taqueria.

            1. This is exciting. I still haven't been to the other location (Durham?). But I'm in Chapel Hill now and then --- so will be able to check it out!

              1. A second Locopops is opening in Chapel Hill on 231 S. Elliot Rd. The grand opening is tomarrow.

                Wow, from a humble little store hidden away in an obscure part of Durham to 6 stores in just a few years. Good for them!

                  good product and what must be seriously low overhead.

                  Are they taking that corner where the coffee shop used to be next to Great Harvest and the ABC store?

                2. Locopops has also opened a location in Hillsborough on Margaret Lane (west of Churton) near Banditos!

                  1. so proud that the original lil locopops is still going strong in its out of the way location on hillsborough rd in Durham...i hope it never gets too big to leave its original spot.
