when I heard that macaron’s were the new cupcakes I couldn’t imagine how it could be so. They are ultra pricey and such a fleeting wisp of a bite. They are highly flavorful but don’t leave me with the satisfaction of a cupcake. Maybe I am selling them short but I haven’t been convinced. One thing I have seen over and over in blogs and magazines this summer is the paleta. A paleta is the Mexican ice pop made with fresh fruit. The idea has been further expanded to the most unbelievable flavors that are all over the place. We stopped into a great little place called Spuntino for dessert. They have the most luscious gelatos and a reach in filled with a dazzling array of paletas. I had a great Vietnamese iced coffee and Z had black pepper honeydew. Mine was incredibly refreshing and cool on a hot night. The honeydew was really interesting and weighty in flavor with a hit of pepper left on your tongue. If you see a food truck or street vendor selling a paleta-pick one up and be prepared for a cold pop of flavor.
