La Newyorkina's Paletas are coming back !!!

Friends, I am so grateful, humbled, amazed, excited and overjoyed with your response, help, pledges and sweet notes.  Thank you so very much!!!  Your pledges have helped me reach our goal to purchase a Paletera Maker and return to making your favorite Ice Pops.

I still have a long way to go to be able to replace all that was lost during the Hurricane, but all this love has reenergized me to succeed and bring joy to all with the Sweet Tastes of Mexico.  Thank you.

With Love,

La Newyorkina Doughnuts

Hi everybody,

As you know, during the cold, winter months, La Newyorkina shifts from Paletas to more appropriate Mexican sweets to help New Yorkers get through the cold. Today I spent most of my day at Dough, the doughnut shop in Bed Stuy (corner of Franklin and Lafayette) testing new doughnut flavors for my friends, and let me tell you, they were delicious!!!!

  • Mulled Wine
  • Citrus Sugar
  • Guava and Cheese
  • Pear Cider

Check out the pictures below and make sure to stop by this shop, especially on these cold days for a heart warming doughnut and maybe some hot chocolate.  

To my great pleasure, I just checked our Kickstarter account, and we're 75% there!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Everything helps!! And, if we exceed our initial goals, I'll be able to purchase other equipment. I'm hoping we could raise enough for a new freezer and refrigeration unit.  So please, keep spreading the word, post, tweet, email, share, like and do all the other wonderful stuff so more people can join in.

I'll keep you updated and will be sharing more in the next few days.

With love,

La Newyorkina
