3. Elado Icecream - Pico Rivera & Anaheim, CA
If you're looking for authentic Mexican-style ice cream, look no further than Elado.
Hmmm....Prickly Pear in a waffle cone, Creamy Churro with chocolate syrup, or Guava Dulce with extra whipped cream? Decisions, decisions, decisions!
4. Cowboy Club - Sedona, AZ
Move over potatoes! These flash fried cactus strips are served with prickly pear dipping sauce and are our new fave sidekick for that lunchtime burger. What a wonderful world we live in!
5. Alexandra's Macarons - Seattle, WA
A little dash of Southwestern cactus fruit puts a prickly new twist on this classic French treat. Order a few "a la carte" or take some home and go "a la mode." You've got carte blanche!
