T2014 Favourite Ice Cream Stick

This is my favourite ice cream 紅豆粉粿 (Hóngdòu fěn guǒ), I think I ate one stick everyday during my trip to Taiwan since there is a 7 11 around every corner where I can buy this.

紅豆is red bean. 粉粿is flour cakes which are chewy (QQ) cubes embedded in the ice cream.  粉粿 is made mainly from tapioca flour. If you search for 紅豆粉粿, you will find many photos of 粉粿.

There are two main brands selling this type of ice cream: 義美 (I Mei)  and 小美 (Xiao Mei). Both are nice but I Mei has more milk in its ice cream so I prefer Xiao Mei because its taste is lighter with less milk which enables me to eat more.

  3. Since you had it once a day, I am sure it's good.. The ice cream looks very creamy, if you can eat 1 stick a day, then I can eat 5 sticks!

    1. The other brand has even more milk in its ice cream. If you want very creamy, then you have to eat the ice cream from I MEI.

  9. Cool! I Mei also makes mooncakes and pastries like love rolls. I think they're a huge company in Taiwan. I also went to a lot of Family Mart when I was there.
