Ice-cream magic music!


On one of our visits to Mahebourg, while we were strolling along the waterfront, we heard the continuous music of an ice-cream van. And although, while stationary and never-ending, it did get somewhat annoying… it still brought me to some years back when I was a kid…

When we were kids, every time we were at a beach, we loved to hear this music coming closer and closer to where we were. We would run to our parents to beg for a couple of rupees (at the time!!) to be able to buy an ice-cream. If the music faded away before reaching us, we would be all disappointed, but if we managed to get the most coveted ice-cream we would be thrilled and excited!

  1. The meaning of the phrase “ice cream” varies from one country to another. Phrases such as “frozen custard”, “frozen yogurt”, “sorbet”, “gelato” and others are used to distinguish different varieties and styles. In some countries, such as the United States, the phrase “ice cream” applies only to a specific variety, and most governments regulate the commercial use of the various terms according to the relative quantities of the main ingredients.

    1. Yes Leena, you are right. I remember when I was in Reunion island they had very distinctive terms for some products. Here in Mauritius, we mostly differentiate between ‘ice cream’ and ‘sorbet’, but that’s pretty much it! Every kind of cold cream falls into one or the other :)
