I would imagine that "mezdekili Turk kahveli dondurma" would be even better! ie Turkish coffee ice cream with gum mastic! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastic_(plant_resin) It gives the Turkish coffee a bubble gum flavour, but a nice one, not sickly, it's very subtle! Ask @laurabotts and @heleninstitches I can send you some if you want, the resin that is, you can use it in baking or making your own ice cream.

@halil Quite good: https://mcconnells.com/products/turkish-coffee We have booza/dondurma here, but I haven't gotten around to trying it yet: https://www.republicofbooza.com/

@halil mastic is not called mezdeki in turkish, it is called “sakız” :) and while you can make chewing gum out of sakız/mastic, it definitely does not have a bubble gum flavour. has a much different and unique, fresh, resin like flavour (well, it is resin after all).

Turns out there's a summer pop-up store for the booza shop, and it's much closer to me, so I'm going to try it today finally!

@grizabella: they aren't the same thing? What is sakiz resin name then?

@halil mastic and sakız are the same thing, it’s just that “mezdeki” is neither the turkish equivalent of mastic or a word we use for anything. sakız also means chewing gum in turkish, which makes sense given that the name mastic comes from masticare https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/masticare
