Our Story

LocoPops is celebrating 15 delicious years. We are grateful for our amazing community!


LocoPops is best known for where we began: our pops!

In 2004, LocoPops founder and owner Summer Bicknell traveled to Tlazazalca, Mexico to learn how to make a treat she loved: Mexican-style popsicles, known as paletas.  When considering where to open her own business, a fortuitous stop for gas on a road trip brought her to Durham, North Carolina. Durham felt like home from the start.

We are grateful to be a part of this community.  Order online or visit our Dessert Cafe in Durham to taste our fun flavors and find our pops at partner locations across the Triangle.  We look forward to getting to know you.


Giving Back

We are grateful for our community and love partnering with local agencies and school organizations to give back.

In 2020, we created Give Back Days to share a portion of our revenue with local partners and we collected Pay-It-Forward Donation Pops in partnership with local economic or pandemic need-based agencies to provide treats to folks during this extraordinary time.  Connect with us to inquire about collaborating.
