DDR Softies (Berlin, Germany)
Mühlenstraße 5, 10243 Berlin, Germany
DDR Softeis is a small food cart that plays on Ostalgie (nostalgia for the East). It is normally located close to some of the remains of the Berlin Wall, one of the top touristic spots in Berlin. This day it is part of some kind of festival at the also highly touristic Alexanderplatz. The serve just one thing: ‘soft ice’ based on recipe of the former GDR. I get a normal, which is a swirl of vanilla and chocolate (€2). It is virtually tasteless. Just cold.
Perhaps fun for the experience but not for the taste (because it doesn’t have any).
