Topped, drizzled, and stuffed popsicles.
Morelia Gourmet Paletas is Charlotte’s latest popsicle shop, serving up delicious frozen treats that you’ll be craving all summer long. They’ve even gotten their name and unique style of dessert from the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Morelia city in Mexico, where these dreamy popsicles are said to originate from. This Mexican-inspired gourmet popsicle shop, that has its roots in Miami, has 11 locations nation-wide, and their Charlotte location will be their first in North Carolina.
Paletas Morelia does popsicles the traditional Mexican way–which means bigger popsicles that are made with 100% natural flavors and a base made of both Italian Gelato and French Sorbet. They offer fruit-based flavors like Strawberry and Coconut and decadent dessert flavors like Belgian chocolate and Dulce de Leche.
Aside from the natural flavors, Paletas Morelia also offers unique dippings and toppings from Nutella to sprinkles to coconut flakes. The possibilities are endless. As a note, during the grand opening, the paletas themselves are free but toppings and dippings will be an additional charge. On your next visit, you’ll have the opportunity to try even more delicious flavors like coconut lime with real slices of lime or condensed milk-filled Passion Fruit paleta.
We can’t wait to try. The Charlotte location will be at 1425 Winnifred St. #104 Charlotte, NC 28203 next to Wooden Robot Brewery. See you there.
