Paleteria problems in Sonoma Co.

Neither of the local Mexican ice cream stores are currently producing paletas (popsicles). It seems that the state has cracked down on them, requires a separate manufacturing room for both types of treats. This is very sad news as it's finally hot here. The happy news is there's still good ice cream at these places as well as Screamin' Mimi's in Sebastopol & (probably still) Downtown Bakery in Healdsburg.

    This is a terrible development. But I appreciate the head's up. Our paleta heaven snatched away from us.

      I was trying to figure out what happened to the popsicles at Michoacana.
      Very dissapointing to hear this. Maybe they should start a collection so they can put up walls in the space in the back.

        Michoacana will reconstruct the production area this winter during slow season.

        Yay paletas!

          Great news, thanks for the update.
          I drove by last night and wondered what they did during the winter, it was completely empty.
          I'll have to stop by and see if they do enticing cold weather items as well.

          Michoacana's remodel is complete.

          They expect to have paletas again in two weeks.

            Super, gracias! And, I had a paleta at Fru-ta two weeks ago. The price for the agua ones has gone up to $2, an increase of 50¢ each, but so worth it. Here's the strawberry one, made with local fruit.
