Hunt for Paletas
Jeff, I've got a paletas place for you (not homemade, but commercial and pretty good).
LOTS of flavors too ... probably about fifteen or twenty flavors to choose from -- $2 or so each IIRC.
It's an Italian pastry shop run by Mexicans. The awning that adorns the place is from a previous owner and these new folks have no ties to the name. The location is the former Zeppieri Bakery / La Dolce Bakery space on East Tremont Avenue at Westchester Square. I think they are dba Lazaro Bakery Inc. Their Mexican bread (conchas) is cooked fresh daily.
The Italian pastries are very good also.

They sell the exact same ones from Fernandez, PLUS they sell others of the Sley brand.
I also found nieves today (which are essentially mexican slushies), it was 3764 90th St at Miravillas. I had Limon. It was awesome.
