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.
