Morelia Gourmet Paletas, also known as Paletas Morelia, is a gourmet Mexican popsicle shop known for its fresh ingredients and extensive menu. It welcomes South Florida locals and tourists to enjoy authentic Mexican paletas at its South Florida locations from Miami-Dade County to Palm Beach County. Guests can choose from up to 16 popsicle flavors including pistachio, mango, Belgian chocolate, banana filled with Nutella, and many more. To differentiate itself from other ice cream shops, the unique Morelia experience consists of the following process: 1) Pick it, 2) Dip it, 3) Top it. Among the store’s signature, craveable toppings are smores, marshmallow fluff torched, and Nutella drizzle. The shop offers over a million different combinations by adding dippings and toppings to enhance the ice cream experience and take the flavor to the next level!

The founders chose the name “Morelia” because it’s the capital city of the State of Michoacán in Mexico, where it is believed the first paletas originated when people added fresh fruit to ice to refresh people from the hot weather. These paletas are hand-made, artisanal, and made with 100% natural ingredients; packed with a much larger punch that will make your taste buds dance. Morelia’s paletas are gourmet due to its top-quality ingredients; combined with both Italian Gelato and French Sorbet to give it that natural yet tasty flavor. The logo resembles a Mexican Catrina, which is a symbol of the “Day of the Dead” in Mexico, but it is a tradition full of life. The Catrina means equality, union, and culture. Equality as we are all made of bones and Union as we are equal, regardless of gender, sex or culture. The whole concept of Morelia Gourmet Paletas, from its name, logo, flavors, and idea behind it, the popsicle shop brings the true flavors and meaning of Mexico to South Florida.
