West Chicago, IL: May 1, 2013 - Foodies around the country have discovered the fresh fruity flavors of the Mexican treat known as paletas, milk or fruit-based ice pops. Small shops, kiosks, and pushcarts have been popping up to sell the frozen treats which have a wide appeal among people of every ethnicity. One such paleteria has arrived in downtown West Chicago at 208 Main Street and is already creating a buzz for their deliciously distinctive desserts.
Paleteria Rosy, started as a small family business back in 1975 in Mexico by Juan Figueroa, who first came to West Chicago in 1980 and fell in love with the town and its people. Hoping to start his business on Main Street, he unfortunately passed away six months before its grand opening. His children (daughter Rosy and her husband Raul Pina, and son Marco Figueroa and his wife Gaby), decided to take over the family business, and proceeded with the grand opening as a tribute to their father's dream. They are committed to the same hard work and dedication as their father, to ensure their products and services leave their customers highly satisfied. "Our ice cream is made daily with fresh fruits -- with and without dairy products. We also have a variety of snacks, fresh fruit cups and beverages," said the shop's namesake Rosy Pina.
Among the names of some of the great desserts besides the paletas, are luscious mangonadas (soft mango ice), bionicos (Mexican fruit salad), yogurt con fruta (yogurt with fruit), and gelatinas 3D (three dimensional gelatin desserts created with intricate detail). Also on the menu board are banana splits, flans, smoothies and frozen coffee, making it easy work of acquiring the necessary 10 punches on the Paleteria's rewards card for a free dessert.
Although served cold, Paleteria Rosy's desserts may well be the next hot dessert trend in West Chicago!
