actually, there is a story behind La Michoacana. I can't quite remember what magazine it was in though, but basically there is a small town in the Mexican state of Michoacán which is home to the original. People loved the ice cream so much that they began to pop-up all over the Republic, and now even into the United States (there is one in my neighborhood here in Detroit). I still remember the first time I ate a "paleta de limón" from La Michoacana. The one on Avenida Juárez in León, the same Avenida Juárez I would walk down to reach the central plaza in León (see constitucion) where the Hotel Condesa is.
