Earning Your Ice Cream, Kahramanmaraş Style

All over Turkey, ice cream boys dressed in traditional outfits sell the “cut-with-a-knife,” rich and velvety ice cream from Kahramanmaraş (a city in eastern Turkey). And a simple cone is far from a simple cone. It comes with a show.

If you can’t see the video below, watch it on YouTube.

  1. My daughter had the same experience at the same ice cream store in Istanbul as the girl in your video, but she grew impatient and left before actually getting the ice cream cone.

  2. I’m not charmed by that kind of show. It went on for an awfully long time, but maybe he was partly playing for the camera.

  3. The ice cream in Maras is one of the best memories of my life. All of the good in that region is simply wonderful and fresh and the people are genuine and hospitable. It’s my home away from home.
