Do you hear what I hear?

by Vicky

What’s that? Do you hear it? Faintly in the distance, the tinkling sound of bells! Is it a siren? The knife sharpening truck? No! It’s the ice cream truck!

Have you had the pleasure of the ice cream truck coming down your street at just the right moment? You really do need to be in the right place at the right time to catch it.

Why did we not have these when I was a kid? All I remember is the Dickie Dee ice cream cart, pushed by a kid on a bike. Summer just wasn’t summer until you’d had a treat from the Dickie Dee – pacman ghosts with the gumballs, spacecicles, or the strawberry shortcake pop which was always my favourite.

If you’re lucky enough to hear the bells and catch the truck driving down your street, why not indulge in an ice cream treat for you and the kids! It’ll be a summer-time memory in the making.

    I wish it was the knife sharpening truck, my knives are a mess 😉

  2. I LOVED those strawberry shortcake pops! Also the mint chocolate ones with the real hunk of chocolate in the middle. But I love the ice cream truck for my kids because my daughter can get the plain ice cream and I’m comfortable with that even though she is allergic to peanuts. There is nothing in the Dickie Dee freezer that she can have 😦
