LocoPops coming to Chapel Hill

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!

          1. 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:

            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.
