Satisfying a sweet tooth doesn't always mean a trip for some ice cream. This is San Antonio, where Mexican culture brought us the fruit cup and raspas. Chamoy City Limits (multiple locations, chamoycitylimits.com), a food truck, takes the traditional raspa to the next level with selections like The Anaconda and Lochness Monster, which are filled with sweet fruit, chamoy and other flavors to smack your taste buds around.

Las Nieves (1118 W. Hilderbrand Ave., 210-767-2694) has all kind of sweets, such as shakes and smoothies, but you'll want to stick with the fruit cups. For those who don't mind a little wait, Big Daddy's Eats & Treats (multiple locations, facebook.com/bigdaddyseatstreats) has raspas and shaved ice to satisfy your need for sugar.

Los Valles Fruteria y Taqueria (3915 Nogalitos St., 210-927-9595) is the place to go if you want some good Mexican food and equally good Mexican sweets. Sit down to a nice plate of enchiladas or crispy tacos and stick around to enjoy a fruit cup or corn in a cup.

See the rest of the list.
