3 Things: The Ice Cream Truck

Ice-Cream-Truck

It’s summer and time to talk ice cream! Since we’ve covered the basics last summer, this 3 Things let’s talk about a childhood ritual of summer; the ice cream truck.

Favorite ice cream truck treat: The Bomb Pop! Followed closely by a root beer float.

Did the neighborhood you grew up in have an ice cream truck route during the summer? Yes! The neighborhood I lived in through first grade had a fabulous old-fashion ice cream truck visit every summer in the early afternoon with soft serve! I remember getting root beer floats every. single. time. (The Bomb Pop love came later.)

Ice Cream Man Song: Old-timey fun or Creepy? While it never fails to make me perk up and look out the window for the ice cream truck, this song always sounded a little creepy to me. Like the background music in a horror film.

Your turn – cut and past the following into the comments and join us in playing 3 things!

    Favorite ice cream truck treat: I was always a Drumstick kind of gal.

    Did your neighborhood growing up have an ice cream truck route during the summer? I couldn’t seem to get away from ice cream truck while I was growing up. They were EVERYWHERE in PA!

    Ice Cream Man Song: Old-timey fun or Creepy? Fun. Unless they’re parked outside your window for more than 5 mins. Then you want to kill someone.

    Did your neighborhood growing up have an ice cream truck route during the summer? Yes, we called him the ding dong man. That is very embarrassing and weird. :)
    Ice Cream Man Song: Old-timey fun or Creepy? Totally creepy-read Stephen King’s new book Mr. Mercedes. It will make it that much more creepy.

    Favorite ice cream truck treat: Oooo, a fudgesicle. Or a creamsicle. Any of the ‘sicle based treats, basically…

    Did your neighborhood growing up have an ice cream truck route during the summer? Our ice tream truck seemed to be a bit hit or miss. I don’t know if he had another day job or what, but I do not remember it being a regular thing at all, so when you heard that music, you better RUN.

    Ice Cream Man Song: Old-timey fun or Creepy? Fun then, sort of creepy now. Especially when you hear a really old truck whose music is JUST this side of too-slow. Then it’s down right terrifying…

    Favorite ice cream truck treat: Any character-shaped pop with gumball eyes! Or the bubble gum pink and blue swirl pops.
    Did your neighborhood growing up have an ice cream truck route during the summer? OMG yes. I lived in an apartment complex as a kid and there were swarms of kids any time they heard that truck slow-rollin’ by.
    Ice Cream Man Song: Old-timey fun or Creepy? Fun at the time… creepy now.
