New genuine, handmade, homestyle Mexican-style ice cream parlor provides spooky treats

As seen in “Texas Eats” by KSAT 12, Tropicana ice cream serves a taste from the heart of Mexico with fresh handmade ice cream, paletas, fruit cups and snacks in the Alamo City

Everything is made from scratch, including ice cream, paletas, aguas frescas, chamoy, chili and whipped cream on the fresas con crema.

“Our Aguas Frescas are also made in the shop with natural ingredients. Make sure you try them all before you decide on your favorite, ”said Denisse Diaz, General Manager of Tropicana Ice Cream. “We make sure (in the process) that everything we offer our customers is the best it can be.”

On the snack menu, hungry customers can try mangonadas, banana splits, milkshakes, churro splits, fruit cups, nachos with jalapenos and corn dogs.

Since autumn is officially here, Tropicana Ice Cream is introducing its new flavor of pumpkin spice ice cream for all pumpkin spice lovers.


“This ice cream is also handcrafted with pumpkin puree and our signature pumpkin spice blend, which is sure to make your fall evening a little better,” said Diaz. “I like to eat this delicious pumpkin ice cream with a graham cracker crust and some whipped cream – and boom, it hits exactly the point.”

You can also make your own ice cream biscuit sandwiches. All you have to do is choose an ice cream, pick a topping, and the eatery will roll the biscuit right for you. With so many combinations, it might be a bit difficult to choose, but there is a lot to try.

To get a taste of what the menu has to offer, see below for the wide variety.
