El Michuacan popsicles

Thi N. | May 7, 2003 06:18 PM

Have been horribly, delightfully addicted to Mexican popsicles lately. Favorite flavors tend to be coconut and arroz con leche. In L.A., my favorite variety is sold by some circling vendors in East Hollywood that has a penguin on it. "Quiescently frozen."

Anyway, in Santa Barbara, having burritos at a Mexican place recommended to me from this board - not La Super Rica - (they were alright; their chile rellenos were better) - I popped into the attached market and we picked up some Mexican popsicles. These turned out to be the best Mexican popsicles I've ever had; hell, the best popsicles I've ever had. Rich, resonant flavors. Coconut was beautifully fresh coconut flavored; arroz con leche was actually just insane. We almost turned around and braved bumper-to-bumper PCH traffic just to get more.

Anyway, they were El Michuacan brand popsicles. My Mexico-lovin' girl says that everybody she hung out with in Oaxaca claimed that the best ice cream came from El Michuacan. Anyone seen this brand around L.A.?
