Crystal’s La Michoacana Rose to Make State Fair Debut
Visitors to the Minnesota State Fair next month will have an opportunity to eat a delicious treat normally found at Crystal ice cream shop La Michoacana Rose.
“It is a big deal. If you’re from Minnesota, you grew up in Minnesota, the state fair is a big deal,” said Elizabeth Raygoza, owner of La Michoacana Rose. “So it is really exciting for me and my family.”
This week, the fair released its list of new foods, and Crystal’s own La Michoacana Rose made the list.
The dessert shop along Bass Lake road will offer paletas at the Hamline Church Dining Hall (located on the North side of Dan Patch Ave. between Underwood & Cooper streets).
A paleta is a Mexican frozen treat that’s usually made with fruit and mixed with milk. Like all good fair food, it comes on a stick.
“As I always say, I’m a foodie,” Raygoza said. “And the most exciting thing for me of having a place like this is for everybody getting to know something new and different. And it’s the Great Minnesota Get-Together, so that means, a lot of Minnesotans that are not in our city that haven’t tried us will at least get to know about us. So that’s really exciting.”
La Michoacana Rose is also debuting a new birthday cake paleta at the state fair in honor of the Hamline Church Dining Hall’s 125th year at the fair.
Other flavors that will be available to fair-goers include water-based flavors, passion fruit and strawberry. They’ll also sell bubble gum, pecan, Oreo and pistachio flavors, which are dairy-based.
