As I write this my lips are still warm from one of the mango popsicles covered in chipotle-spiked chocolate. It was a tough choice being that banana-peanut-butter, coconut-lemongrass-ginger and salted-chocolate-with-pretzels pops were also on the menu.
Cordialis is originally from Chicago, where he worked as a florist before moving to Tucson with his girlfriend. He says frozen ice pops are "a good vehicle for delivering a wide variety of flavors and ideas." He says he got the inspiration for his new stand from places like Locopops in North Carolina.
A cyclopsicle sells for $2.50 to $3. You can keep up with Cyclopsicle and the fantastic popsicles it peddles over here.
(BTW: I do realize this is not a food truck, but starting a new series called the Food Bike Diaries seemed ridiculous. Bon appetit!)
