29 Paletas To Melt Over

Paletas equals popiscles, pops, ice pops, but I for some reason like calling them “paletas” better. The difference is: most paletas are made from fresh fruit/vegetables, some sugar, and water or milk. What also makes them different than popsicles are the flavor combinations. This round-up is a beginners guide to all the best paletas. Enjoy!
