Beat the heat with some refreshing ice-cream

If you’re looking for a way to cool off as temperatures soar well above 30 degrees Celsius, try taking the heat off with some freshly made ice-cream at the Teeuan Ice-cream Shop.
Your hardest decision will be what flavour to go for. You have a choice of taro, green tea, coconut, chocolate or sago, or maybe you prefer something a little different like pineapple. You can also choose between a variety of cone flavours such as sago or plain, and toppings such as dried grape, Arenga pinnata and black jelly.
The price of an ice-cream including the cone is 5,000 kip or 10,000 kip depending on the size. Anyone who wants to buy large quantities of ice-cream for a party or other event can buy it by the kilogram, for 50,000 kip.

Some examples of the ice-cream on sale at the Teeuan Ice-cream Shop.

The shop is located in Salakham-neua village, Hadxaifong district, on Thadeua Road.
The owner, Mr Xaypanya Sisouphan, graciously calls on people passing by to sit and taste the different flavours of his ice-cream.
He says that since the temperature has risen recently, the number of customers looking to buy ice-cream is also on the rise. Some of them eat it at the shop and some take it home to eat.
He is very pleased when his ice-cream is enjoyed by customers as he spent almost a year perfecting his offerings and making sure each ingredient was of top quality. Even though it was a long and difficult process, he never gave up.
As a big fan of ice cream himself, he said he knows the most important part of selling ice cream is to ensure the ingredients are of high quality. He personally tastes every new flavour before offering it to the public.
For the ingredients, Mr Xaypanya buys young and mature coconuts to use as the base.
To begin with, he targeted students as his main customers, mainly because his shop is located close to Salakham Secondary School.  The number of customers gradually increased every week. After that office workers also became regular customers. 
Today, he is proud to offer his latest flavour - pineapple. It’s a fruit that is grown in abundance across Laos and has a sour and sweet flavour that goes well with the taste of coconut cream.   
To expand his business, Mr Xaypanya said he has a marketing plan. Anyone who wants to sell ice-cream as a retailer can contact him. So far, some schools, restaurants and hotels have become his business partners by buying his ice-cream to sell on their premises.
As a special offer for Visit Laos Year, the Teeuan Ice-cream Shop is offering a promotion - every Saturday, customers who buy a large tub of ice-cream will also get a small cup for free.
The shop is open from 10am-7:30pm.
