“It was hot. We was stuck in traffic. My wife was like, 'Hey, let’s stop and get an icy,'” said White. “We all got a popsicle, whatever flavors we wanted.”
The girl’s mother, Michelle Gayle, told Petchenik that her daughter wanted pineapple. But the vendor steered her to try a mango treat instead.
Within minutes, Gayle said her daughter’s demeanor completely changed.
