Raspados Loly’s In Sweetwater, Florida

My wife Marcela introduced me to Raspados Loly’s back in 1998. Raspados are Nicaraguan Icees. There’s a giant block of ice which is shaved, packed into a cup and layered with Dulce de leche.

You don’t have to choose Dulce de leche though, there are other flavors like Nancite (yellow cherries), Tamarindo, Pineapple, Jocote (a type of plum), Strawberry, Mango and Mamoncillo(when in season). You can also order it “con relleno” which means they’ll add some poundcake to it. Raspados Loly’s originated in Nicaragua and has been around for over 50 years.

The shop also sells regular icees, Ice cream, Nicaraguan cajetas (sweets) and my personal favorite, Nicaraguan Coke.

Marcela also loves Coyolitos. Coyolitos are like a bitter coconut. The inside is ground up, rolled into a ball and then rolled again in sugar. They look like little chocolate doughnut balls. Personally, I thought it taste like bad licorice.

If you’ve never had a Raspado I say you give it a try and Marcela wanted me to pass along a suggestion. Order the Dulce de leche con relleno and make sure you mash it up, she says it tastes better that way.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.
