When I lived in our old house we would buy from the ice cream truck every day. Then we moved and the man did not go to the new house. The next year he quit and a new man came. One day we almost went to burger king we saw the ice cream truck. We got an ice cream from him instead. We asked him to start going there. He went for five days before saying he couldn't go to walker county anymore.
I remember when that company first started they sued Sony for using an image of their truck in a T-rated game.
When I was a kid back in the early 1970's, the Jack & Jill ice cream truck used to come up our street. My favorite item was the "Rocket", which were space-themed Push-Ups with vanilla ice cream with chocolate swirl. I believe the "Rocket" Push-Ups were inspired by the Apollo moon missions of that time.
I haven't seen an ice cream truck in years. Granted I've been living out in the boonies for a while but still you'd think somewhere down the line I would have to come across one. I always start cracking up everytime I see the scene in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot where George Kennedy and some other dude are using an ice cream truck to stake out some area to plot their caper or whatever and when some bratty kid keeps on giving them lip George tells him "Look kid, go f*** a duck."
I'm from a really small town and we never had ice cream trucks. But I do remember them when I'd visit relatives in Downer's Grove, IL (a Chicago suburb). I thought it was so cool, because they had all these neat items that weren't available at my local store. Where I live now, ice cream trucks drive around during the warmer months. I don't understand how they make money--I've never seen anybody stop them.
