Las Paletas has to be Nashville's most heralded stop for dessert. Retailers all around the city sell the delightful Mexican style popsicles.
The main storefront is in the 12 South neighborhood. Flavors are grouped into fruity, creamy and none-of-the-above categories. Popsicles can also be dipped in local Olive and Sinclair chocolate.
Fruit flavors included strawberry kiwi, lime and cantaloupe. Creamy flavors were chocolate chili, pineapple coconut and banana chocolate chip.
The chocolate chili has a deep, spicy taste. The avocado, when dipped in chocolate, has a perfect richness.
