It all began with a family trip to Costa Rica. My sister in law told us about how in Nashville people would line up when the Paletas cart would come around so she wanted to make sure we tried them in Costa Rica. We spent each day looking for these Paletas she talked about. One night as we were eating outside we saw this adorable little Paletas shop and just had to try some. We chose all different flavors, because obviously you can’t just pick one. Each of us took our bites and talked about how amazing it was and passed it to the next in line. I sat there watching how these popsicles were making us all laugh and talk and share in the experience. I wanted to bring this same feeling of unity and happiness to other families. Right as I was thinking this my husband said “ Meggan, we could do this in Utah. You could make them and sell them at festivals and Farmers Markets.” When we got home he ordered me some molds and the rest is history.
Now finding the right name was a whole different story. Paletas was a common name for these creamy pops but we wanted to head a different direction. My husband had seen a meaning for Paletas on a website. It wasn’t quite Little Fat Stick but with a few tweaks we reached the glorious name. And we are in love with it!!
