Pasteles? Popsicles. They're delicious at Cocoberry Pops

Pasteles? Popsicles. They're delicious at Cocoberry Pops

LEO's Eats with Robin Garr

Two popsicles at Cocoberry Pops.

I couldn’t leave the South End without checking another new spot, Cocoberry Pops, another street-food eatery that offers just one thing - a very good thing - Gourmet-style popsicles based on Mexican paletas.

Made with only fresh ingredients, organic cane sugar and no artificial flavors, these treats are only $3, and they are delicious. About two dozen flavors are divided between fruity and creamy.

A lime pop was fresh, tangy and tart, with a true lime-juice flavor. Caramel was subtle and sweet, not salty, just pure browned sugar. Chocolate was light milk-chocolate, evoking childhood Fudgesicle memories in a much more grown-up flavor. A cashew pop was non-dairy, but it tasted like fresh, sweet cream. More. I must have more.

It's locally owned by an Indian family, and I think they're a little bit better than Steel City Pops. More intense flavors. And that's saying something, because I like Steel City Pops.

Finally made it over yesterday, and I completely agree. I like it better than Steel City. Had a mango popsicle, and the missus had coconut. Both were great! Three bucks is a steal, too. We'll definitely be back to try that roasted peach flavor.

Glad you like it, Iggy! We've been helping host a Congolese refugee family who live just south of Churchill Downs, and every time we go out there, we take them over to Cocoberry for a treat ... for them and for us. :mrgreen:

I went yesterday and I was surprised at how good they are. The price is the same as Steel City, as are the basic ingredients, but the mix might be different, as I found these broke up better and were easier to eat, whereas SCPs have a firmer texture. Both great, difference being that between 4 and 4.5 stars, but I'd choose Coco more often were it convenient.

I went there after the Sante Fe Grill (good, but the flavors are a good notch below El Mojcajete, Imo) -- a good double-dip trip (few miles apart) for one not in the area much. Or Annie's Cafe, right across the street from Coco.

Even the little Safari Grill, run by a Somali guy and Kenyan making East African food, is worth a stop. It's even closer to Cocoberry than Annie's. (And yes, of course, Annie's is more than legit.)

I wanted to point out that they now have a Frankfort Ave. location, a few spots down from the Silver Dollar. I went to the other spot and it was great -- this closer location will certainly get my business.

Yes! We’ve been in twice already. I should have said something, my bad. Also, Panchito’s is open in the former Banh Mi Hero on Bardstown just south of Douglass, with padteles, ice cream and tacos!
