Ice Popsicle Making Cart



If I did not write the title, I bet you would not know what these are. Many wooden sticks (thinner than chopsticks) stuck inside bright and colorful gel-like mixture inside small tubes. The (1-inch diameter) tubes are attached to this big drum filled with ice.





The vendor makes the popsicle right on the spot. He pours liquid-y concoction inside the tubes, shakes the drum occasionally. But we did not dare to buy and taste these. We do not know where the vendor got his water or his liquid syrups. Look at the bottom picture where he keeps his water and syrups. :)




This is a street scene from the country we visited last December. From this contraption, can you guess where we went? :)

I think you went somewhere not cold in December. Why would they sell popsicles if the weather is cold?

Ivy said...

It could be anywhere. India, Sri Lanca, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia.., Barbados, any help?

We tried it! It's good! It's similar to a favorite childhood treat - the ice candy. :)

That looks very interesting. I saw the answer. I didn't guess Bangkok. I had figured somewhere in SE Asia.
