In the Valley of the Angels, this is the last day of Semana Santa Holy Week.  In the hot afternoon all the families are strolling around the plaza.  We duck into a small dark shop for… popsicles!

They are inside a freezer chest on wheels, under a scratched plexiglass door.

Frutas o leches (fruit or milk)?  I look to the right side at the creamy popsicles de leche.

Chocolate and cinnamon, vanilla with strawberries.  Rum with raisins, caramel.  Electric aqua colored chocolate mint.  Coconut, banana, cheesecake with cherries. La pina- pineapple.  Beautiful colors, like the Easter egg candies I would see if I were home.

I choose creamy marbled brown café au lait. I am extra delighted to find a pure chocolate center around the wooden stick!
