The Good Humor Truck!

"I scream, you scream,
we all scream for ICE CREAM!"
~
Do you remember hearing the sound of bells chiming coming down your street from the Good Humor truck? Remember how excited we got and ran to Mother for some change from her coin purse? "Hurry, hurry Mommy", sometimes almost wetting my pants with excitement!!! And if you were lucky enough he parked in front of your house and the kids all came a run'in! Then that long awaited first bite of your
favorite ice cream was always the best!
Ah, those were the days my friend!
~
It all started in 1920. Henry B. Burt, the founder took the name from the saying
"To please a man's palate,
put him in good humor"

Hi MaryJane,

Oh yes, I remember the good Humor Man! My favorite was the bomb pop.
Dark chocolate outside, banana, and pink sherbet on the inside. thanks for the sweet memories. Hey do you remember the whip ride that used to come around? It was inside a truck, and you could ride for 10
cents.

I can still remember the tinkling bells of our Mister Softie truck. The music would play and we would all run to the corner for a yummy summer treat. What a dear memory!
