Ingredients are carefully sourced they work closely with farmers in NY and nearby to get their delicious organic dairy, seasonal fruits and herbs. Other ingredients that simply don’t grow or can’t be found around New York like the Mexican vanilla bean, Oaxacan chocolate, tamarind, some dried chiles, passion fruit and hibiscus are imported, but we spend a lot of time and care making sure we get the best ingredients available and work with small producers in Mexico as we believe its very important to support them as well. To put it simply, the heart and mission of La Newyorkina is to share the delicious sweetness of Mexico and rich culture. We deeply and sincerely hope that you enjoy its sweetness as much as we do! La Newyorkina has expanded from one cart to several ones and our paletas are also found in many more places.
