La Tradicional Michoacana Ice Cream Shop | Santa Maria

On the way back from Santa Barbara in April, we stopped in Santa Maria for a paleta break. This was my first visit to La Tradicional Michoacana and it's my new favorite in the area. The staff were friendly and helpful and the venue is fresher and brighter.

Huge selection of flavors, including some more unusual ones and combinations. I went with fresa con crema, my usual first order, and especially because we're in strawberry country. A little less sugary than most and fresh, clean flavors. William tried the strawberry agua fresca, and he said it was better than Nueva's in Lompoc, with bits of fruit and not as sweet.

Besides paletas and ice cream specialties, La Tradicional also offers a variety of Mexican-style snacks. Opinions?
