On a recent afternoon, we ventured to the Locopops on Hillsborough Road to sample a variety of their frozen treats, available in a range of traditional to adventurous flavors. After reviewing the menu (and ten minutes of indecision) we each chose five flavors—a decision that paid off as we instantly filled up a frequent buyer card, earning us a free pop (or 'paleta' if you live in Mexico)! Locopops offers water and cream-based flavors, so we sampled a combination to get a good feel for what this local shop has to offer.

Here is what we thought of each flavor:

•Cookies-n-Cream - they've got this one nailed; with huge cookies chunks this is sure to be a unanimous favorite
•Watergate Salad - tastes exactly like that mystery salad that always turns up at pot-lucks; sweet and enjoyable
•Thai Rice Pudding - sweet and milky in a subtle way
•Strawberries-n-Cream - more of a blend than strawberry chunks; not our personal favorite
•Chocolate Banana - instant favorite; great flavor combination
•Pomegranate Tangerine - sweet, fruity and refreshing
•Chocolate Brownie - chocolate chunks make this a dead-ringer for Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie
•Mighty Mojito - a slightly tangier option that will refresh you like a glass of ice-cold lemonade
•Guava Jalapeno - fun to try for the oddity, but this one was hard to finish
•Mango Chile - tastes just like the fruit, but heavier than some of the other fruit flavors
•Rosemary Apple Cider - we suggest a little more on the apple cider and less on the rosemary

Locopops is really awesome. They have several locopops "de crema," cream based popsicles and "de agua," or fruit based popsicles. I have sampled the malted milk ball popsicle and the pomogranite tangerine. Both were delicious. I would give a small nod to the pomo/tang and have the general impression that the fruit flavored water based popsicles are probably better. The bigger question is why is this listed here under restaurants? They only serve popsicles and clearly cannot be made a meal out of. But, good job to the popsiclists.
