Swirl Fiesta is a frozen yogurt shop like no other. Of course they have the typical frozen yogurts and delicious toppings that you would expect from any yogurt shop, but this spot is changing the game. Not only can you cool down on a hot day with some froyo; you can also elevate your snack time with incredible elotes. But make sure you leave enough time. This place is so popular that people are reporting wait times of 1 to 2 hours.

Swirl Fiesta is a one-stop shop for anyone craving a Mexican snack in Riverside, Calif.

The Days Are Numbered For These Iconic Food Trucks In The Santa Ana Area

Jeanette Duran / VIMEO / GARNET / FLICKR

Santa Ana, California’s loncheras aren’t just food trucks. Whether they’re serving a bowl of belly-warming pozole, or selling plastic toys and Takis for the children (or those young at heart), the loncheras are an extension of the community they serve. Tourists and regulars alike photograph their time at the loncheras, sharing them on their social media accounts. Each snapshot capturing the charm and smiles that can only come after enjoying the experience these trucks provide.

Unfortunately, as OC WEEKLY points out, Santa Ana’s city council has its regulatory targets set directly on the community of food trucks in the Santa Ana area.


For now, the loncheras remain, but if these strict regulations are handed down, the days of these trucks are likely numbered. This will put at risk the income of a large section of the local population in Santa Ana and it will remove a crucial part of the culture and community as well.

The OC Weekly has a great slide show featuring photos of the hardworking men and women who make the loncheras possible. Check out the the link below.
