Shaved Ice Cart

My favorite flavor is "Juice".

Plastic shopping bag keeps Ice Block fresh and cold.

  1. Piraguas for the win!
    -Juice is not reallly a flavor though, maybe the dude selling was not a real "PIRAGUERO"

    If you want the real deal, find a Puerto-Rican-Pushcart-Peddler, preferrably with a small portable radio perpetually playing vintage salsa and the obligatory flag waving proudly in the summer breeze. lest we forget where their from.

    According to Wikipedia, the more common flavored syrups used in the "piragüas" are the following:
    Ajonjolí (Sesame seed)
    Anis (Anise)
    Cereza (Cherry)
    China (Orange)
    Coco (Coconut)
    Crema (Cream)
    Frambuesa (Red raspberry)
    Fresa (Strawberry)
    Limón (Lemon)
    Melao (syrup from the Sugar cane)
    Melón (Watermelon)
    Parcha (Passion fruit)
    Piña (Pineapple)
    Tamarindo (Tamarind) and
    Uva (Grape)
