On a new episode of THE ICE CREAM SHOW, host Isaac Lappert's tour of the best ice cream shops in America takes him to Los Angeles, where he stops by Mateo's Ice Cream & Fruit Bars—home of the first Mexican "paletas" to hit LA. Isaac sits down with shop owner Priciliano Mateo to hear why he decided to bring the classic frozen treat from Mexico to Los Angeles, and tour the kitchen where the icy, fruity popsicles get made.

THE ICE CREAM SHOW airs Tuesdays at 10:30 PM. Find out how to tune in here.
