Paletas Betty Mexican Ice Cream!

One of these stores opened up on Mill Ave and I just had to go! These stores specialize in Mexican ice cream and they've been incredibly popular over here in Arizona.


The shop was rather quiet so we went in, got our popsicles (I think they were two dollars or so for one) and sat outside. It was kind of expensive, but I think again, worth it for a treat. After some struggling, I opened it.


The mold of the ice cream looks like it has a bite out of it already. That scared my friend.







So, yeah. I think I got the strawberry flavored one and I absolutely loved it. I also had a lick of the chocolate one and it wasn't bad either. It was a little pricey for a popsicle but I thought it was great! It really gave you the perfect amount of a cold treat. If you're interested in their website, you can visit here


I also want to let you guys know that I recently signed up for Skimlinks, an affiliate site.(If you click on this link to sign up for the service, I will receive a commission.) I'll give an opinion about it, but I'm super new to this as well. You'll start seeing links for the items I post and it'll get me motivated on my blogging resolutions. Especially for more fashion and haul related posts! I proooooomise I won't start just posting things. I'm just curious to see how this works. =)

  10. That looks so good! Do you have a Costco by where you live? Every summer, they sell boxes of Mexican popsicles that look really similar to that! You should check them out. :)

    By the way, I love your top! It looks like it's still pretty warm where you live. I'm so jealous! I'm bundled up in a sweatshirt and sweats as I type this!

  21. I have to find a paletas place close to where I live... I don't like popsicles much, but apparently the Mexican version is much better with much more flavor. I tried making some before, but failed-- too much jalapeno!

  24. When I lived in LA I remember buying them from people pushing carts outside my school for 25-50 cents a pop. I hope these are at least artisanal considering the price. Let us know how Skinlinks works - seems like an interesting concept!

  27. yum I've never tried Mexican ice cream, but it looks good! You'll have to let me know how SkimLinks works, do you have to pay up front or is it just ads?
