t is hot in Kaohsiung during the summer. Everyone tries to find some ways and makes him/ her feel cool. In Kaohsiung, “Popoice” is the first-choice ice cream shop.


Eighty years ago, Taiwan was still an agricultural society. Most people had no money to buy snacks. They used to cook sweet red beans soup or sweet mung beans soup

as snacks. Popoice’s founder, Mrs. Tsai, got a recipe of making ailing fruits and traditional snacks. After a while, the neighborhood knew that Mrs.Tsai


was good at making snacks, and they all loved to enjoy the delicious snacks.

Shaven ice, fresh fruits, adds to some condensed milk and jam. Here is a wonderful ice bowl. Besides shaven ices, Popoice has many kinds of ice snacks like snow ice with

fresh fruits, traditional eight treasures ice, red beans with milk ice, etc.

If customers want to taste some hot soup in cool weather, Popoice’s famous sweet red beans soup will bring warm and comfortable for you. By Lucy Lai

Unlike other stores, Kaohsiung roast duck roasts the duck using coal to make it smell better. After roasting, the chef will cut the duck into pieces and served on a platter. People can eat the roast duck directly. However, the store provide the “ flour skin” for customer to have a new flavor. According to people who have ever tired this “combination” they claim that’s super delicious! In addition to roast duck, Kaohsiung store provides other delicacies such as rice blood, and so on. Next time if somebody comes to Kaohsiung to visit you, just take them here to enjoy the roast duck. By Lily Pan
