After check out and a quick lunch in Port Hueneme on my July 2019 road trip, I continued on to Helados Mexty #1 down the road. This is the original store of the small chain, located in a long strip mall called Bay Marina Center, and does the production supplying the other shops in Southern California. It has the most selection and freshest inventory.

I asked the counterman for help in selecting a paleta. He suggested one of the chocolate-covered Esquimals, as one of Mexty's specialties. Normally I avoid these, as the coating usually tastes more like wax than chocolate. A good recommendation as this had deep cocoa notes over the core of intensely flavored strawberry ice.
