Corn in a cup! Because some of us can’t handle the cob and seem to make a mess when we eat. Talk about flavor!

Tostitos preparados

This is similar to corn in a cup. The only real difference is the addition of the chips, or Tostitos, that add more flavor.

Paletas

Popsicles! These are not your average chocolate or vanilla flavors either. There are both water based and dairy options sold but common flavors are lime, strawberry, mango, tamarind, and others that often times have fruit chunks frozen inside of them. One of the best dairy options is the chocolate and nut covered vanilla popsicle with a strawberry filling in the middle. Amazing!
