At a Glance

This ice cream has been pushed through the streets of Ajijic daily for the past 30 years.

More Info

Chances are, you’ve already seen Flavio Aniceto pushing his ice cream cart through the streets of Ajijic. His family has been making and selling nieve de garrafa for the past 30 years.

Maybe you’d recognize him more easily if you heard his familiar sales call, which he belts at the top of his lungs: ¡Nieeeeeeeve nieeeeeeeeve!

Flavio sells two or three flavors at a time, including vanilla, strawberry, lime, mamey, chongos, and others.

Check out this video of another company if you want to see how this popular style of ice cream is made in Mexico:
