Last year, I launched the first-ever #PaletaWeek, which kicked off the first day of summer and featured a roundup of one of Mexico’s sweetest treats: paletas (popsicles)! Twenty-five bloggers contributed over 35 popsicle recipes with a Mexican twist. There were daily paleta-inspired giveaways that included everything from my favorite paleta molds to books, Paletero Cart air fresheners, and handmade paleta cookies and cards. Get ready, because this year it’s going to be even more fun! Save the dates: #PaletaWeek 2017 – June 21 to June 25. In the meantime, stay tuned for Hola Jalapeño’s upcoming Margarita Week from this Friday, April 28 to May 5.
