Close-up Look at a Guatemalan Ice Cream Cart

Here’s the scoop and the ice cream, vanilla flavored and once it gets put on the cone they top it with acid-sweet syrup that ice cream men called chirmol. Chirmol is the Guatemalan name for a tomato-based sauce with peppermint, onions and hot chiles; so this is not what they put on the ice cream. They use the word chirmol to mean the colored syrup they use as topping.
