Best Old-School Paletas Phoenix 2011 - Realeza Michoacana
Sick of the rock-hard snow cones and corn syrup popsicles from your local ice cream man? Pack up the kids and take them to Realeza Michoacana instead, where they'll get a fresh fruity treat instead of an over-processed, syrupy sugar high. Paletas contain loads of fresh fruit in exotic flavor combos that your local ice cream truck probably doesn't bother stocking. They have familiar fruit flavors and more exotic tropical tastes, like guava, tamarind, and horchata. There's also a "cocktail" paleta if you're feeling the need for a midday frozen margarita, or snag a mango chili paleta with chunks of fresh mango mixed into a salty, lime-infused, chilly treat.
