“Put the A/C on in the truck and then just eat some ice cream, some cold pie, stay cool” said Stanley Hajt who was eating ice cream at the event.

“It was a bit of a struggle yesterday. Coming in today, our ice is melting really fast so we found that our ice cream sandwiches were starting to heat up and melt a little bit, so we had to put a hold on those” said Kayhan Yazdani.

Yazdani says it has gotten easier to cope with the heat and be able to serve cold refreshments.

“We’ve managed to start coping with that today, we just got heavier ice shipment in, it’s a little hotter today but i think we’re kind of starting to work with it” said Yazdani.

The Taste of Saskatchewan event runs until July 17th with no relief from the heat in sight.
