When the familiar tunes of the neighborhood ice cream truck begin to fill the air, you can bet that every child on the street runs to the window for a look. I know our kids do. Okay, not just the kids, we all do. After all, the ice cream truck brings back memories of our own childhood of playing in the streets until dawn, running through sprinklers on hot days, and simply enjoying the outdoor air with friends.
For me “way back then” the choice was always an easy one. Good Humor® Strawberry Shortcake was my go-to treat. The cake-coated frozen Strawberry Shortcake dessert bars could make any day 100% better with just the first bite. When I head outside to the ice cream truck with my family today, I still look for those same delicious dessert bars. And, to my taste buds delight, they still carry them!
Just the smell of Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake sends me on a long trip down memory lane. As Colby and I sit and enjoy our ice cream truck treats with the kids, we share stories of “long ago” when we were young. We talk about our childhood before we met and the years during our teens when we were dating. He and I would sit on the curb in front of his house and talk for hours into the night. But, as we visited there on the side of the street, we would hear the familiar sound of the ice cream truck making its way through the neighborhood.
Good Humor started a “delicious revolution with the first ice cream on a stick and then the original ice cream truck” almost 100 years ago. It’s an incredible story that spans generations and ties each one to the next. Strawberry Shortcake was one of the original 85 flavors in 1960 and saw a re-launch in 1992 — the year I graduated high school. It’s story comes full circle with the classic flavors still being enjoyed by so many today; just as Colby and I can still enjoy the flavors of our youth with our children.
