Maybe its due to summer officially being upon us, but I’ve been on a serious frozen treat kick as of late. This place has been on my radar for a while now. I think I first saw images of some of their delicious treats scroll across my social media feed a few months ago. I knew then and there that I had to visit. I really love any kind of local small business presenting authentic cuisine, and make a point to go support such places whenever possible! La Michoacana certainly fits that description.
After attending an awesome event that my church hosts called “Worship Nights,” where worship leaders from churches all over the area come together for a night of amazing music and worship, some of my dear friends and I visited this place for a late night treat. They had already been here several times and had nothing but great things to say. I had seen a picture of a “Mangonada” (pictured above) and was convinced that I had to give it a try. I didn’t really know WHAT it was….but it looked great and that was all that mattered! One of my friends did try to talk me out of it and informed me that it was frozen mango ice cream with spicy pepper sauce and spicy pepper gummies sprinkled with Tajin. I was skeptical, but wanted to give it a try. Her husband absolutely LOVES their mangonadas and assured me that he would finish it if I didn’t like it.
After ordering and engaging in a full photo shoot (because let’s face it, this thing is truly photogenic) I timidly took a bite. I have to say it’s like nothing else I’ve ever had. The mango was sweet and tangy, but the salty and spicy peppers make it a bit sour. If you haven’t tried it, you should at least once. I’m not sure that I would get it again, but it was certainly worth trying.
My second go around I tried the other treat that was recommended by my friends. Fresas con Crema! It was absolutely amazing. I’m a big berry lover and this delivered. There was a giant scoop of frozen strawberries covered in cream, chocolate, and wafer cookies!
My daughter joined me during this trip and tried one of their many cream based Popsicles. She loved it….but made a GIANT mess eating it. I think it’s pretty obvious what flavor she indulged in.
This place offers more than just frozen treats too! They have street corn and a whole host of nacho bag options! If you go, leave me a comment with what you got and if you would recommend it! They have so many options I want to try them all!
