Nothing says summer like hearing the “Mister Softee Jingle” of the ice cream truck in your neighborhood. This jingle is exciting for kids to hear and the visit of the truck makes them feel special – knowing they live in a neighborhood where the ice cream truck comes! To take it one step further, the jingle is exiting for adults too because it brings up the nostalgic feelings of our own childhood. Remember begging your parents for a few coins to run to the truck for a treat before it pulls off into the next neighborhood? I do! The ice cream truck is certainly a staple of summer in every neighborhood. That’s why we were so excited to see it in Parkside this week!
The prices are a bit steeper for a cone since we were kids, but the feeling remains the same.
