The Paletería Michoacana will make you a lifelong fan of the Mexican paleta!
Forget everything you think you knew about popsicles, A paleta is a Mexican popsicle, in exotic flavors like tamarind, chile, strawberries and cream, pina colada, watermelon, cantaloupe, mango, and so much more. They contain hefty chunks of fruit, and a depth of flavors that go far beyond the typical ice-water popsicle. Instead of the emphasis on sugar and food coloring typical of American-style popsicles, you get complex flavors of real fruit that please the eye as much as the palette.
These hefty popsicles will delight adults and children. In the heat of summer (or anytime of the year), Paletería Michoacana de Paquime is worth the drive from anywhere in Albuquerque for tasty paletas, and other ice-cream based treats and tropical drinks. Also, when compared to the prices of commercial ice cream chains like Baskins & Robbins or Dairy Queen, the high-quality offerings at Paletería Michoacana are an absolute bargain.
The paleteria sells other desserts, too, but for me, the popsicles are really special. The Paletería Michoacana has moved to a spacious new location just across the street from its prior address. Don’t pass it by! You won’t find anything in your supermarket freezer that is as tasty!
