Costco Carries Great Paletas
But alas, last week I found a new item at the Tustin Costco that I hope they never ever stop selling. These are simply labeled generically "Helados Mexico", and they are paletas, Mexican ice pops made of fruit and, in this case, also milk. A friend said that he's been enjoying these paletas for years and that Costco has carried it for as long as he can remember.
They're still no substitute for the homemade wonders and the myriad of flavors that mom-and-pops like Nevería Flor de México offers; but if you're looking for an entry-level paleta, these are a good buy. At $9.19 for 24 pops, it comes out to a very reasonable 38-cents a piece.
