Sorry I've been MIA for awhile. Just got back from a vacation in FL-- didn't want to hnag around for Dennis! :-)
So, have my fellow Triangle Hounds heard about or tried the popsicle store on Hillsborough St. across from the Greystone Church? Not sure if I have the story exactly right but the two sisters running the store are from Memphis, and came here after having spent a year in Mexico learning how to make paletas (popsicles). There are two main versions, one that is creme based and the other fruit based. Thus far I have thried their mango with chili and coconut-lime creme. Delicious! They have at least a couple dozen flavors and run $1 for small, $1.50 for medium, and $2 for large. If you've got a sweet tooth and want something different give them a try.
