Looking for a spot that has it all? Check out Frio Mexican Treats right in the heart of Appleton! What ever it is that you’re craving, they may just have the right formula to fix your cravings! With a wide variety of fun things you can get, Frio’s menu consists of sweet and savory items to hit the spot every time!

Frio Mexican Treats offers items ranging from delicious ice cream often topped with warm churros, to smoothies and even elote’ cups! (corn in a cup)

To pair perfectly with your taste buds, Frio is decorated inside and out to bring out the fun and colorful Mexican heritage experience. You’ll find cacti décor on the counter tops and along the walls and even brightly colored seating! It’s one big fiesta every time I’m in there! If you’re looking for an Instagrammable moment whilst enjoying a yummy Mangoneada, this is the perfect place!

On this particular day, it seemed as though this was the place to be! I noticed that plenty of customers ordered at least 4 items and some even to-go, in drink carriers! Even though Frio stays busy, these treats are so addicting, it’s soooo worth the wait! 

Let me explain why it was extremely difficult to just order one thing. The ice cream choices! I knew I wanted to try something more on the savory side, so I went in knowing exactly what I wanted, the Elote’ Cup. But after seeing the endless options of ice cream flavors available, I knew I would have to make plans to come back and try more soon.

 Popular ice cream flavors available are: Cookies & Crema, Bailey’s & Nescafe, Chocolate Abuelita, Pistache, Mermaid Chicle, Avacado, Mexican Vanilla and Mexican Vanilla with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. 

They also offer Dairy Free flavors such as: Tamarind, Strawberry, Limon Verde and Mango Fresco. 

You betcha, I’m eyeing that Mermaid Chicle for my next visit. 😉 

Now, let’s get into what I ordered.

So if you don’t know what a traditional elote’ is, well, you’re in luck, I’m here to tell you!

ELOTE’ 101: An elote’ is an authentic Mexican street corn typically eaten on the cob and on a skewer. Not just any corn on the cob, I mean, it’s basically decked out with Mexican crema, dusted with the dry Mexican powdered cheese Cotija, drizzled with butter and topped off with some paprika. *insert drooling emoji* One of the best “snacks” you can enjoy on the streets!

Frio adds a fun spin to the traditional elote’. The call it Elote’ in a Cup and it has many variations of ingredients that can be added for a little *pzazz*. On their menu, their elote’ options are: Flaming Hot, Doritios Elote, Traditional Elote, Takis Elote, Oh My Goodness, and the Sriracha Elote.

Diving in: I ordered the “Flamming Hot Elote’”. I’m a Hot Cheetos lover (must be a 90’s kid), so when I saw that they had this on the menu, I was stoked! The ingredients in this nostalgic cup of goodness includes: corn, crema cotija, Mexican powered cheese, Mexican Crema and best of all, Hot Cheeto crumbs!

For those of you who’ve never had a concoction this delightful, it may take a bit of getting used to at first, but I promise, the more you indulge, the more you’ll enjoy.

They have a large menu so I can’t wait to go back to try the other fun things. Let’s be excited to support local and visit Frio Mexican Treats together! If you check out this place, make sure you tag them and us at @friowisconsin / @friomexicantreats and @noshfoxvalley / @therobia so we can see what you decided to order during your visit.
