I’m pretty sure our local ice cream truck driver has been messing with us all summer. You know how the ice cream truck has that very distinctive music that plays and signals people everywhere that cold, frosty treats are slowly making their way in your direction? Well, we have been hearing that music all summer but have yet to see an actual ice cream truck anywhere.
Granted, we live on a dead end so the chances of him coming down our street and stopping in front of our house are probably less than some of the other houses BUT I do remember quite clearly silently cursing out an ice cream truck for s-l-o-w-l-y driving up and down our road back when LJ was of nap taking age, so I know they know we are down here. Several nights we have heard the melodious call of the truck from what sounds like the next road over and have hopped on bikes and even in the car to hunt him down with no luck. I began to wonder if one of the neighbors was playing a recording of the truck’s call just to be funny. Since my poor little kiddo was feeling rather down after our last unsuccessful ice cream truck hunting expedition, we decided to take matters into our own hands.
We went to Walgreens.
Hey – stop your laughing!! Walgreens has a great selection of all of your favorite Unilever frozen treats. For just under $20 (which is probably what we would have spent for each of us to grab a treat or two from the ice cream truck) we got a BUNCH of goodies at Walgreens.
Everybody got exactly what they love – I got my Magnum bars with creamy caramel and rich chocolate, Jay got his Fruttare Strawberry Bars, and LJ got Oreo ice cream AND Klondike Bars (lucky kid!).
So if your ice cream guys is like ours and seems to be playing a game of hide and seek, forget trying to hunt him down and just hit your local Walgreens instead!
