You say Popsicle, I say Paleta
This LA Times story from a few years back is worth revisiting. And although I don't plan on driving to downtown LA or Lynwood, or whipping up a batch of cucumber-chile popsicles, I do plan on buying plenty of La Michoacana paletas, or Mexican-style popsicles.
What makes them so good? Besides the fresh fruit, creamy style, or flavors? (Strawberry, lime, guava, among others, and my daughter's favorite, bubble gum). My guess: they use sugar. Not corn syrup, not fructose, but sugar.
I just devoured a strawberry paleta. Delish. And, for those who count, 61 calories. See you in the freezer aisle
