Roll on over to FruitMix on Bandera for their latest menu item: rolled ice cream. The Thai-style dessert, often found in Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia and the Philippines, has finally graced San Antonio after being in the States for about two years. Tasty Nation, a rolled ice cream shop, will open off De Zavala later this year.

Owned by Manuel Quintana, Fruit Mix serves up fruit cups, smoothies, juices, and snacks, and in an effort to differentiate himself from other dessert shops, Quintana added the hard-to-fid treat. He purchased the flat top ice cream maker, unpacked it Thursday, and started offering rolled ice cream on Saturday, July 29.

He says Saturday was the busiest day he's seen in months. Quintana purchased the shop in January, but FruitMix was first opened two years ago in the same location.

A signature board of 10 flavors was rolled out Tuesday morning, with combinations such as Gansito with chunks of the Mexican pastry, and the Elvis with peanut butter, banana, bacon, whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Cups are priced at $5.99.

FruitMix is open noon to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and closed Sunday.

7007 Bandera Road, Suite 14, (210) 451-1410.
