La Michoacana’s Pineapple Chili Fruit Bar

Posted By on Mon, Apr 20, 2015 at 10:45 AM

I was told there was one paleta I absolutely had to try at La Michoacana, and that’s their pineapple chili fruit bar ($2.13).

I expected to see chunks of pineapple and chili. I was wrong. You can see the chunks of pineapple. What’s hidden inside the fruit bar are pieces of lime and what appears to be hints of chili powder. It looks like red pepper chili flakes and has the texture of a BBQ rub.

It didn’t taste at all like I expected. When you lick or even bite into the fruit bar, it’s nice and sweet. Then, there it is: The chili flakes add a kick of spice mixed in with the sweetness of the fruit. Is it a fruit bar that I’m eating at a dessert place or am I eating a spicy dish at a Mexican restaurant? My mouth is so confused, but in the most amazing way. Mind, blown!
