El Paso has heated up into the 100s all last week and we are just getting started. One of the best ways to stay cool in this weather is to enjoy a delicious paleta.

A paleta for those of you who have not heard this word before is a Mexican frozen treat that can be made from the fruit or rich creamy ingredients, according to paletasmorelia.com.

Ice cream and smoothies are great but there is just something about a paleta that hits a spot like no other frozen treat.

Don't believe me? Well, I stumbled upon some fellow paleta lovers who shared their treat online.

Sometimes you just need to tell the world about a delicious treat. Why else would you share it on social media? Many people might share everything they eat on social media but there still has to be some type of magic that makes you want to post a treat on social media.


I then continued to scroll through my Twitter and stumbled up Texas State Senator Cesar J. Blanco enjoying every Dad's favorite flavor of paleta, Nuez or Pecan.

If you are still looking for a Father's Day gift, I think Senator Blanco might have accidentally given us all the best ideas.

I am loving that paletas are getting their love on social media and I need more of it. We are asking El Pasoans to tell us their favorite flavor of paleta and I want photos.
