This cooling-treat, which traveled thousands of miles from Russia to China, has been a lifesaver for many this Beijing summer.
Produced by Russian company IceBerry and sold in Qing-Feng Steamed Buns Shop, a time-honored brand in Beijing, this ice cream has gained popularity recently.

The freezer containing the ice creams was labeled "Russia's national gift"－a phrase which originated last September, as Russian President Vladimir Putin brought a few boxes of that as gift for his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping when they met on the sidelines of the G20 Hangzhou Summit in east China's Zhejiang Province.

IceBerry is one of Russia's time-honored brands, and its factory is located in Penza, a city 625 kilometers southeast of Moscow. It has been producing dessert for the Kremlin for decades.
This time, Chinese customers are getting a taste of this ice cream which graced the tables of the Kremlin, said the company's production manager Olga Yagodina.
