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.

Hello Phoenix New Times,

I saw a link to this article on Paletas Betty's Facebook wall and thought you all might be interested in the Paletas for PCH fundraiser. This Friday, Nov. 18th, Paletas Betty will donate 30% of the total sales from BOTH their locations (Chandler & Tempe) to Phoenix Children's Hospital! Please tell them Mars C. sent you! And Here's the event link below. If you can't make it please do spread the word of this wonderful fundraiser.

The Chandler Art Walk is also the same day!

Sincerely, Mars C.
