Below is an interesting video I found on youtube regarding the comparison to a paleta from a paletero and a store bought brand of a fruit paleta.  Since the video is in Spanish, let me talk about what the video is about.  Young college students in Mexico City did an experiment using a fruit popsicle from a paletero and another one from a store brand.  They unwrapped both paletas using the same flavor and asked several people to taste both of them to see which one tasted more like fruit versus sugar.  The end results were that people preferred and liked the taste of the paletero fruit bars more than the other because it tasted more like fruit and it tasted more authentic
