The Mexican Paleta is a frozen treat made from natural fruits or creamy
ingredients like milk or chocolate. Legend has it that Paletas originated from
the Popocatepetl Volcano, near Mexico City. Aztec emperors would mix the
retrieved ice with fruit and chocolate.
We’re excited to share this cultural treat made for emperors to our community
of Taos. Making Paletas from fresh fruit has been the best part. Each Paleta is
hand made with freshly squeezed limes, oranges, fresh fruit, and love. We
make delicious traditional flavors like Mangonada, Strawberry, Mango, but
also not so traditional flavors like Mango Jalapeno, Lemon Lavender, and Kiwi
Loteria Paleteria will be selling Paletas at the John Dunn Shops, opening day
on Sunday May 1st weather permitted 11am-5pm or until we sell out. Looking
forward to seeing your smiling faces.
