Paleta is the spanish word for popsicle. The Paleta Man is like your neighborhood ice cream man, but instead of having a truck he has a kinda bicycle. You might see him at parks or outside of schools when the kids are getting out. I found the Paleta Man in the picture above on the busy streets of Jefferson. The guy didn’t want his picture taken for some reason.
I remember when I was a little kid hearing the ringing of the bells and running with dollars out and ready. Now if you haven’t tried mexican paletas, then you are missing out. They come in all kinds of flavors, like strawberry, coconut, and mango just to name a few. And in case you are in the mood for something else, they carry bags of chips with salsa ready to go too.
