Any Nashvillian looking to enjoy a chilly treat could visit a traditional ice cream shop for a scoop of vanilla or chocolate. But why would they, when they could stop by gourmet popsicle shop Las Paletas instead, for deliciously unique frozen treats in flavors like avocado, honeydew and tamarind with chili?
One of the most unusual, and popular, flavors concocted by storeowners and sisters Irma Paz-Bernstein and Norma Paz-Curtis is rose-petal. Originally created as an “edible and romantic” Valentine’s Day special (perfect for this time of year), the rose-petal paletas were so popular that Paz-Bernstein and Paz-Curtis now make them year-round.
For a taste of rose-petals, or any of Las Paletas’ tasty and unusual flavors, stop by the shop on the corner of 12th Avenue South and Kirkwood in Nashville.
