Appetites for cool treats are strong
Locopops to Locopints
by Victoria Bouloubasis
Sticky summer air has seeped into our lives. Our gardens are flourishing and our appetites for cool treats are strong. Locopops (128 E. Franklin St. and 231 S. Elliott Road, Chapel Hill; 2600 Hillsborough Road, Durham; 1908 Hillsborough St., Raleigh; www.ilovelocopops.com) makes the most of these two seasonal phenomena by creating handcrafted popsicles using local herbs and fruit. Now the business with a kooky sense of self has rolled out ice cream, called Locopints.
