[Comments] (5) La Rosa By Any Other Name:: Young's Market has discontinued selling La Rosa bars. I went over there to buy one, and no dice. I communicated my disappointment to the manager on duty, and he said he was surprised this morning--nobody told him they were going, either. He will tell his big boss he has been getting customer complaints.

In the meantime, I guess I need to listen carefully for the jingle of the man with the cart.

You are so silly about your La Rosa bars! Eat one for me.

What are La Rosa bars?

I didn't know any stores ever sold La Rosa bars. They are good.

La Rosa bars are the local brand of Mexican paleta--basically a fresh fruit smoothie frozen into a popsicle. They come in all kinds of flavors--lime, coconut, strawberry, mango, tangerine, tamarind, pina colada, and then cream flavors--strawberry cream, chocolate, and so forth. Addictive.
