I told Mr D I’ll come here with him but I was already in the city with my uni gang and decided to go in ninja mode and hopefully Mr D won’t know (I hope you’re not reading this hohoho). We stood awkwardly at the front of the shop and tried to look at the menu from afar (yeah, we’re cool like that) and was like Chill Bro to each other.
The lovely paleta man (totally should have asked his name…dammit!) waved us over and explained how everything works. Gosh he was the cutest ever and was so patient while we just stood there awkwardly. So basically paletas were mexican ice-cream and the flavours were on the menu and in the ice-cream storage thingy at the counter.
We couldn’t decide so Mr Paleta Man rushed into the back and gave us a sample of pistachio and the cheesecake one drizzled with milk chocolate and topped with chocolate crumble. IT WAS SOOOO GOOD!
He explained that we just choose an ice cream flavour then we decided if we want a full or half dip in either dark or milk chocolate (WHO WOULD DO HALF DIP?? There is never enough chocolate in my life!) then we sprinkle toppings while the chocolate is still warm. Now the important part is…UNLIMITED TOPPINGS!! You can have as many toppings as you want and you won’t be charged EXTRA! ARGHHHH!!!
Toppings and Chocolate Dip
So my friend went first and she got the American Eggnog dipped in milk chocolate and sprinkled with coconut and peanuts. I don’t really like egg nog but I didn’t mind this!
Dipped in Chocolate
Sprinkle the Toppings on
Now Sprinkle the Other Side
I got myself the strawberry and condensed milk dipped in milk chocolate with tim tams, oreos and chocolate honeycomb toppings. It was wayyyy too hard and I didn’t like mine at all.
Strawberry with Condensed Milk Palenta with Milk Chocolate, Oreo, Chocolate Honeycomb and Tim Tams – $7.50
My other friend got the crunchy donut with milk chocolate and rainbow sprinkles to be like a real donut (mmm donuts!). THIS IS A MUST HAVE! It is soooo good! So creamy, so donut-y, so AMAZEBALL!! This was my favourite flavour!. Another guy got the Dulce De Leche and I liked it too!!
Overall, I’ll totally come back, Mr Paleta man was the most lovely person providing great service and AMAZING Paletas!! I’ll have to take Mr D here so I can get myself the Crunchy Donut!! GOD I LOVE YOU CHILLBRO PALETAS!!
