“THE BEST Ice Cream & Popcicles Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2011

we have been to mazatlan many times. this wonderful couple (loa and rak) who have a really cool art store called nidart opened this ice cream store across the street (to the side not directly across from the front). this was our first time trying it as it opened sometime after our trip last year. all i can say is YUMMY! the pistachio ice cream is the absolute best i've ever had. the peanut ice cream is just as great. the other flavors (lemon pie, coconut, strawberry and so on) were also just as great but the pistachio is a stand out if you're a pistachio ice cream person. here in the states we are used to seeing bright green ice cream with pistachio pieces however this amazing version is not bright green - the pistachios are the ice cream. it far surpasses any i've had. the popsicles are just as yummy with flavors ranging from lime, coconut, strawberry all the way to kaluha and rice pudding (arroz con leche). again, all were amazing, but the rice pudding and jamaica (hibiscus) were beyond amazing. they even have small popcicles so if you don't want to commit to one flavor you can buy a few in the smaller size. i think the hours were 9am to 9pm. if you find your self in centro historico don't hesitate to try something here - they are all natural too!
