Mambito popsicles are a traditional sweet treat made with egg whites, sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla essence. You can find them at various stalls in downtown Mérida, near the markets, as well as inside the markets themselves. They are very common in the dessert tables of Yucatecan celebrations, known for their distinctive flavour and colour. Mambito popsicles are just one of the forms in which these meringues are sold, as they are also individually shaped like snails on top. Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy these famous mambito popsicles; you'll definitely want more than one.
