Paleteria y Neveria Fruit HDZ Juices | Santa Maria

Melanie Wong | Jun 18, 201806:54 PM    

Passing through Santa Maria a couple weeks ago, I stopped at the new launch of Fruit HDZ Juices in the Stowell shopping center. By my count this is the sixth paleteria in this town, which must be some kind of per capita record. This appears to be a rebranding of the former 5 Star Yogurt. The ice creams and paletas are imported from Mexico.

After trying a couple flavors of ice cream that showed good intensity but were freezer-burned and stale, I decided to get a paleta instead. This is the Gansito, $2.25.

Named after the Marinela bakery snack cake, Gansito has cake, creamy filling, strawberry jam, chocolate sprinkles and icing like the pastelito. The ice cream portion is vanilla ice cream and strawberry ice. It was fun to try something more tricked out even though it was too icy and not that fresh.

For the road, i got a small cucumber and chia seed agua fresca, $3. Refreshing and with more flavorful pulp than typical.

Fruit HDZ Juices is located in the same shopping center, only a stone's throw across the parking lot from stalwart, Paleteria Linda Michoacana, that makes its own ice cream. For me, I prefer the freshness of Linda Michoacana.
