Ice Cream with Madame Chiang

leave a comment »

Visiting the Chiang Kai-shek memorial in Taipei, just outside the main gallery are a couple gift shops along with a coffee bar. The coffee bar offered an array of beverages, along with ice cream; in particular, a special brand of popsicle labeled with a cartoon caricature of Madame Chiang.

Coming in a variety of flavors, chose taro. Took off the wrapper and it was a light purple hue, and in the first taste, it didn’t just have a distinct taro flavor but it also carried a unique texture – felt like there were tiny bits of chewy taro in the popsicle, itself – a pleasant addition.

If ever in the area again, will have to try another flavor; there was one in the shape of a flower that piqued a lot of curiosity.

A refreshing popsicle for when the sun beats down on the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial.
