Oh snowcones, that takes me way back. Those were the good ole days. I must confess though that I still love ice cream and have to be careful and not buy it all the time or I will eat it. There are so many wonderful kinds out, I just tried a Summer Peach Pie with little pieces of crust, it was only 4.5 grams of fat per serving which is not bad for ice cream. It was deliciouso!!!

It was a plain, old fudgesicle for me! Still is in fact. Only now it's Healthy Choice instead of the ice cream men's fare. :)
That snowcone does look yummy though.

Oh Ice cream, I still love to hear the ice cream van today..... I used to enjoy a '99 cone', whipped vanilla ice cream with a piece of cadbury flake,they still do them now, although I bet they are not 99pence anymore! I remember getting a scoup of ice cream in a cone as a child, I went to lick it, and the man hadnt pushed it in the cone enough and it all fell onto the floor!!! ha,ha I was bought another of course! ahhh memories....

Hi Maryjane,
Oh I love your posts! So darling! Let's see...by the time I came around (1961) it was the Carnation man in the Carnation truck and my favorites where always the ice cream sandwiches. You can eat them without getting your fingers sticky :)
I hope you have agreat 4th! I'm sure I'll stop back by before then.

I remember "Hazel's Country Store" in West Virginia where we would get an ice cream out of an old freezer. I loved those orange push ups too with the colorful cardboard wrapper. What a wonderful memory! Thank you.

And I can't believe that was Sister on the Fly in Country Living! How exciting! Believe me, I'm looking for my trailer!

Smiles,

Oh Maryjane....Snowcones!!!! I loved those- the red ones. It didn't matter what the flavor was, as long as they were red!
Homemade icecream was such a treat-we had one of those ice cream freezers with the wooden bucket- had to be cranked by hand, of course. My favorite was vanilla, but when I got a little older, peppermint was my favorite flavor....still is today.
Hope you have a wonderful Fourth!
Hugs,
Pam

Maryjane, I love your blogsite! I'm adding it to my list of favorites on my blogsite! My favorite ice cream as a kid was vanilla that I mixed up with birthday cake! Now, it's almost ANY ice cream! I just love those fixed up trailers too - I always wanted to buy a teardrop and make it into a "Honeymoon Suite" to rent to newlyweds! But never did it. Have a great July Fourth!

Buttercram frosting...I mean bubble gum or mint and chip. I remember when you and dad would take us to a store and and we would get cone with our favorite icecream! It was always freezing in there! :)

Because milk makes me gag (but I love ice cream?) my ice cream has to have lots of "stuff" in it.
Like nuts, chocolate chips, cookies, etc.

I was a popsicle girl as a child (when the ice cream truck came around!)
My mother didn't buy ice cream....

Blessings,
Julie

Julie said...

I just remembered... my granddaddy used to buy me "Slush Puppies" when I was really little! Did you ever have those? Yum!!!!

We all still love Icee's! Both of those are very much like snowcones!

blessings,

I loved brown cows when I was growing up. My kids love snow cones but we are cheap and got our own machine to make them...lol

I still love ice cream and I guess vanilla is my favorite, but I've never "met" and ice cream that I didn't like!
