Cuckoo for Locopops! Cuckoo for Locopops!

Hot diggety pops! Locopops has opened in Raleigh.

Locopops is one of the few places in all of the South (at least, in my experience) where you can get the real deal paletas that are sold by street vendors in Mexico, and now increasingly by street vendors in the larger U.S. cities. Paletas are made with fresh fruit, and (often) chiles or other spices that are surprising the first time you eat one. They also (sometimes) have too much salt, but Locopops doesn't do that.

The Durham location, rather unassuming....

(Nod to Anonyman, who loves Locopops. I expect he'll be out front of the Raleigh Locopops location, trying to sell his large body for enough quarters to go in and buy just one more "Mango Hibiscus Habanero." Good luck with that, bud.)

For the record:

1) i believe i introduced el jefe mungo to loco pops, so he owes me mucho.

2) although my girth is ever increasing, it just means there's more of me to love (though less to love than el jefe, who is larger by volume, especially when including hair).
