We won't name names, but someone we know is really into Otter Pops. Yes, those rainbow-hued sugar-water packets from our youth. Ugh. Clearly, this gentleman has never wrapped his tongue around a platano paleta. That's bananas Foster with homemade caramel and añejo rum to you, mister, and it freezes out all the ice pop competition. We have lusted after the gourmet Mexican popsicles sold in places like Los Angeles and New York but wondered how they would fare in Chandler. Quite nicely, apparently, because Betty Alatorre De Hong opened her second paleta shop on Mill Avenue this summer. Now we'll have two places to get nuez (roasted pecan), sandia (watermelon with fresh mint), and cereza (brandied cherries in sweet almond) paletas. Be sure to check Betty's website; flavors change daily.
