Shooting sugar! (...) I mean sugar used in popping candies.
Yes! :)) In Polish it's called "strzelający cukier" (literally: "shooting sugar") and in English it's "popping sugar" or "popping candy", like, for example, American "Pop Rocks" ("Taste the Explosion!" lol). We used to eat such popping sugar sold in sachets when we were kids :)
But... That's not what this riddle is about :)) It is the first ice cream with a popping candy that I've ever eaten and it looks like Nestle decided to introduce a new version of their Kaktus ice cream with a glaze also containing popping candy after the success of the ice cream in the photo. It's also the first ice cream I've ever tasted with a bubble gum flavoured glaze (and it does taste like bubble gum :)). It smells nice and tastes good (especially the strawberry flavour), the popping sugar is fun :) (you can not only feel it but you can also hear the popping), but besides that it's an ordinary sorbet ice cream on a stick.
So... What makes these Polish ice cream (it's produced by a Polish company) so special that people in Poland would storm the shops and buy them out to the point that they would be out of stock and a popular discount introduced buying limits for those ice cream? lol Why would people put even the ice cream packages up for sale on the internet for some ridiculous prices? Why this craze?? ;D
I recognize the place in the pic but I'll give others a chance.
Me too. I also recognise those funny clothes which that old-fashion gent is wearing :))
