Tepoznieves Ice Cream

Tapachula, Mexico

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Exploring Tapachula, Mexico was easy and fun! A clean town, residents were friendly, and open to sharing what their city had to offer.

Here, we stumbled upon a Mexican favorite - ICE CREAM! 

Tepoz Nieves

Tepoz Nieves

Set in an open air surrounding and located down by the town fountain, Tepoz Nieves offers a variety of ice creams, many of them made from local fruit. One you make your purchase you can sit in the outdoor area to the right and people watch.

Where else can you get the Snow of the Gods? Flavors such as Moon Lullaby, Angel Kiss, Queen of the Night and Prayer of Love are only a few of the choices offered in the first left-hand column.

You can get traditional flavors such as strawberry, mint, nut, coconut, chocolate and cappuccino in the middle column.

The right hand column lists favorites of Mexico and Central America -- ice creams with spicy chilis! These are amazingly delicious, as the cold of the ice cream and the spiciness of the chili mix together on your tongue, making you go back for the next bite!

You can also purchase ices, or fruit sorbets. The bottom list are flavors "from the orchard" - avocado ice cream, garlic, beet, lettuce, nopales (cactus) and carrot.

What could possibly be missing?

One deliriously happy place

Mexicans are a festive culture. Bright, happy colors are common, and seriously, we love that tropical touch.

Wouldn't you love to have that table and the sun wall hanging down by your pool area? Or in your breakfast nook and start the day sitting on a watermelon seat, ecstatic with the colors of orange and yellow?

Or maybe just have a cup of coffee instead.

What a handsome young man! This guy was so friendly, and he could see that we were a bit overwhelmed by the choices available. We didn't know where to start.

Billy could eat ice cream every day, no problem, but for me it's a treat. There was NO way I could get all the flavors in on one visit - should I try Angel Kiss? or one of the spicy styles which we really like... or just go traditional?

Nothing beats a really good double chocolate, which is what he's scooping out here for me... and I upped my order from small to medium mid-scoop, which is why he's smiling so broad here, I think. We're hooked!

I'll have to return another day to try Prayer of Love or French Vanilla...

Oh My!
