Turkish ice cream is made from goat milk and mastic resins. It is notable in that it has a much higher melting temperature then regular ice creams. (makes sense in Turkey, I guess)

In turkey it is called salepi dondurma, of which the literal translation of is "Fox testicle ice cream". Mmmmm.......fox testicles.

God, I love wikipedia, it makes you an instant expert on anything.

Why not under 16? At that age and below certainly they are great customers for ice cream and/or all kinds of beverages. zenzen wakaranai.

"Admission is 5,000 yen"

Oh, well, I won't be going. I did go to a FoodEx years ago when someone gave me a ticket.

I've had Turkish ice cream a few times, but it was always vanilla. Where can I get Turkish Rocky Road?

"Why not under 16?"

Heck, that place is crowded enough without thousands of kids running around!

Looks like a lot of fun to visit the exhibition. For JPY 5,000 I would expect to snack to my heart's content.

I am confused, don't you prefer to see interesting photos instead of girls in bikini?

Love - I admit the Turkish ice cream here gives the girls in bikinis a serious challenge!
