What does "PK2 Helados" stands for?
The two letters "P" and "K" in spanish are pronounced "pay" and "kha" the number "2" is pronounced "dōs". If you say it fast, it comes out "paykhadōs", which is spelled in spanish "pecados", which is the word for "sins" in result of:
PK2 Helados = Frozen Sins
Why this helados doesn't make you feel full and heavy?
We don't use corn syrup, extra fat, eggs, artificial flavors or artificial colors. In result our helado is not as creamy like the Ice cream but it allows you to enjoy the natural flavor of the fruits without having to add artificial flavors. Also ice cream machines are designed to induce tiny air bubbles to add a more soft texture, in fact the final product could have up to 60% of air.
Why you decided to start making helados?
Mainly the need for a better and healthier dessert for our kids made us to start making small batches of helado at home. Also, have been living in Albuquerque for over 13 years, and yeah we tried several places but none of them have the authentic mexican flavors that we are used to.
In what part of Mexico could this product be found?
This could be found all over Mexico and also some countries in South America but you must ask the locals to find a place that makes helados from scratch with natural fruit. As we all know, there are many places in Mexico called "Paleterias" or "Neverias" but in order to cut costs not all are made with natural fruit.
Where did you learned to make all of this?
Well, me and my wife lived in Mexico for over 20 years. We had plenty of time to memorize the authentic flavors, personally a neighbor used to make and sell "nieve de garrafa" (helado) and I used to see the process. It was matter of finding the right ingredients and lots of practice.
Do you have vegan options?
Yes we do, all of our water base products are made with natural fruit, no artificial colors, preservatives, eggs or milk.
