IceKramBol or Iskrambol
If you have heard this word before, you must be a kid who loves to play in the street of the Philippines. I grew up in a small town down south in Iloilo City, Philippines. When I was young my friends gave me the nickname Kram, which the reverse spelling of Mark. Then it evolved to IceKramBol which we regularly have for our afternoon snacks during the summertime.
ICEKRAMBOL is derived from Iskrambol (better known as SCRAMBOL) is a famous Filipino term for Ice Slush and sold on bike carts for 10 pesos. You have the ice slush, mixed with colored sugar syrup, if the calorie is not enough, you got to add the evaporated milk, topped with steamed black minute pearls (otherwise know as sago or boba)
