Morelia Gourmet Paletas, also known as Paletas Morelia, is celebrating its 5-year anniversary at every location this month.
How? With free frozen treats, of course. In true Paletas Morelia style, on Friday, September 24, 2021, starting at 1 p.m. until close, most locations in South Florida (and one in Charlotte, North Carolina) will be offering paleta-lovers an extra special way to celebrate with free popsicles. All locations will be participating but Doral.
Since its first store opening in Coral Gables in 2016, Morelia Gourmet Paletas has worked hard to create the best ice cream experience in Miami. The chain now has locations in Coral Gables, Wynwood, Surfside, Hollywood, FL, Aventura Commons, South Beach, Coconut Grove, Doral, Boca Raton, and Charlotte, North Carolina. The ice cream shop is well on its way to bringing the best ice cream experience to the world.
The unique experience consists of the following: 1) Pick it, 2) Dip it, and 3) Top it. Guests can choose from up to 16 popsicle flavors, including Pistachio, Passion Fruit, Belgian Chocolate, Banana filled with Nutella, and many more with several delicious dippings and toppings to top it off! All of Morelia’s paletas are Kosher certified by Kosher Miami (KDM).
Among the store’s signature combinations and crave-able unique toppings such as s’mores, waffle, and Nutella drizzle, guests can create a unique experience that only Morelia can bring to the table, or in this case, your tastebuds. The shop offers over a million different combinations by adding dippings and toppings to enhance the ice cream experience and take the flavor to the next level. At Morelia, being creative and letting your imagination flow is highly recommended. No matter which shop you visit, you’ll find the same fresh popsicles that are made daily at their facilities.
Like all of its grand opening events, Paletas Morelia will be "on the house," although guests will be charged for dippings and toppings. In order to receive your free paleta, guest must RSVP in the EventBrite link and go in-person. Locations and RSVP links are as follows:

Morelia came to life when a group of friends living in Brazil had the opportunity to try Mexican paletas for the first time. The friends loved the large, hand-made, 100 percent natural artisanal popsicles so much that they decided to make their own.
The first Morelia location was opened in October 2016 in Miami, chosen for its cultural diversity, trendsetting ambiance, and amazing yearlong weather. The founders chose the name “Morelia” because it is the capital city of the State of Michoacán in Mexico, where it is believed the first paletas originated when people added fresh fruit to ice to refresh people from the hot weather. Paletas Morelia currently has South Florida locations in Coral Gables, Wynwood, Surfside, Hollywood, Aventura Commons, South Beach, Coconut Grove, Doral, Boca Raton, and most recently, Charlotte, North Carolina.
