"My granny sold these little frozen bags of cooldrink to kids in the neighbourhood for only 20 cents; if you had R1 you were basically a summertime kingpin. The cooldrink was never anything fancy, normally just Mix-A-Drink or Drink-O-Pop, always cheap, colourful and hyphenated. To eat these, we would bash one corner against the wall to turn the ice into slush, bite it slightly open and just suck on it like a popsicle." – Khanya Mzongwana
