Sure, everyone tried a sweet tasty ice cream, but donurdma is not just ice cream. It's a special dessert of Turkish cuisine.
Dondurma is a traditional Turkish sweet that resembles ice cream, as it consists mainly of milk and sugar. But the Turkish recipe also includes a sheepskin and mastic. Due to these ingredients, the treat becomes viscous and sticky (sometimes it even has to be eaten with a knife and fork).

This ice cream melts much slower than usual one so it is sold right on the streets out of carts. Sometimes sellers arrange a whole show with a viscous paste to attract travelers.
