Ah, summer. We’re in the thick of it, and nothing is more welcome than the chance to cool off. While you can always make room for ice cream, there’s something about a sweet, icy popsicle to help you beat the heat. We love the refreshing treats for their simplicity, portability, and nostalgia factor, so today on TTS, we’re rounding up a few popsicle joints that are sure to please. Read on for some spots to help you savor the rest of the summer.
La Newyorkina is the place to go for paletas. Traditionally served up in Mexican markets, the often fruity pops come in flavors running the gamut from mango chile to horchata.
