Helados Mexico Fresa is a creamy and fruity premium ice cream bar from south of the border. It’s technically called a paleta, which is a Latin American ice pop made from fresh fruit (strawberry in this case). I don’t have the patience to lick and suck and savor popsicles, so I just bit directly into this one to experience a full blast of flavor. It was decidedly underwhelming in the taste department. I was expecting it to be bursting with strawberry flavor, but it had more of a milky/creamy flavor. I bought it because I thought it would taste like strawberries. It didn’t. I would say it is 70% cream and only 30% strawberries. It’s not bad, but it’s not great and it definitely wasn’t what I expected or wanted it to be. It was kind of disappointing, and you should never be disappointed with your dessert. There are better strawberry popsicles out there (ones that actually taste like strawberries). Nice try Mexico, but your frozen treats aren’t welcome here. We are now only accepting bottles of Coke and Corona.
