Paletero Muerto


With a child always excited by the appearance of the paletero carts in our barrio (and in front of his school), and having to fend off the high-fructose corn syrup and transfat, I wanted to make a commentary on this, but without insulting the hard-working paleteros (and remembering how much I loved ice cream sandwiches, my favorites, as a kid). My response: “Para los muertos solo lo mejor – puro organico, sin jarabes de alta fructosa y sin transgenicos…”
For the dead, only the best!
