Get excited Tempe, pretty soon you will be able to enjoy delicious paletas without having to make the trek to Chandler.
, the popular frozen treat shop in downtown Chandler, will soon be slingin' their homemade ice pops out of a second location just off Mill Ave. The paleteria is slated to open this August at 425 S. 5th Street, right around the corner from the short-lived Dunkin' Donuts.
For those of you who are are not yet familiar with Betty and her Mexican-style popsicles, the Mexico native makes everything from scratch, including grinding her own spices (impressive!). There are never any fillers or stabilizers and the flavors change seasonally, which means every piece of fruit is fresh -- never canned or frozen.
The paletas shop will join Sparky's Old Town Creamery, Mojo Yogurt, Cookiez and the new Red Mango Frozen Yogurt on the Tempe strip. Now, if we could only get a second Lee's Cream Liqueur and another Sweet Republic, Mill Ave. could be the official frozen snack capitol of metro Phoenix.
