The longest ice-cream
Have you ever tried the longest ice-cream? You can have it in danshuei Township. Most of the stores there sell this long ice-cream. It usually has vanilla, chocolate of both. I found that is really fun, but it is impossible to finish the whole ice-cream cone. Apparently when you ate half of it, you already got a headache.
