Hsinchu County, Taiwan –
Jhudong back in the old days was one of the largest townships in Taiwan, and it was also the first place that used natural gas. During the Japanese Colonial Period, people accidentally found the oil well; thus the Japanese Government set up Chinese Petroleum Company in Jhudong, and the technicians and staffs were stationed here. Today’s Resource Community is the former CPC employee dormitory. There were restaurants, ice shop, tennis courts, grocery stores located in here. Now there is one ice shop left only.
Resource Community has been part of many Jhudong locals’ memories. People would always come here to savour its ice treat every summer. Resource Community not only has witnessed the prosperous history of Taiwan’s oil, but the memory of Resource Community has also deeply rooted in Jhudong people’s hearts.
It is probably difficult for people to believe that one traditional Taiwanese popsicle can actually lure tons of people coming every day. The ice shop in the Resource Community is always crowded with people. The luscious taste of its traditional Taiwanese popsicle still remains the same throughout 40 years. Currently, its traditional Taiwanese popsicle comes in various flavours, such as milk, red bean, pineapple, etc.
Because of its unforgettable and alluring taste, even some of the locals moved out of the town will still remember it and keep coming back for it! However, traditional Taiwanese popsicle only sells in the summer, so if you would like to try it, you’d better hurry up now!
