A huckabuck, also known as a hucklebuck, is a homemade frozen dessert enjoyed by people in Louisiana, particularly New Orleans. It consists of a paper cup that is filled with some sort of sweet liquid like Kool-Aid, and frozen. Children buy them on their way home from school for a dime, or sometimes a quarter; other things are generally sold with them: pickles or candy are favored. The trick to eating it is to flip the huckabuck over so the soft sugary part is at the top then grab a plastic spoon and dig in! They are still served to this day at the New Orleans Jazz Festival, in many neighborhoods around central and southern Louisiana.
