Ah, the ice cream truck. Truly one of life's simplest pleasures and best memories.
Here we have a graphic with 33 of the best frozen treats this country and its musical trucks have to offer. Personally, I can't imagine not picking the strawberry shortcake/crunch/whatever it's called as your one choice, because that is the elite of the elite summertime ice cream snacks — the Julio Jones, if you will. I do, however, recognize legitimate arguments for a few others on this list.
Many simpletons will choose one of the characters in the red row because they are suckers for intellectual property in their ice cream; these are the same people who want to ruin Disney World by making everything Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy, but that's a different discussion. These ice creams have terrible flavors and contain "gum balls" which will chip a tooth if you actually try to chew them. This entire row is canceled.
Also for the purpose of this exercise, one must imagine it's a 97-degree summer day. Fruity flavors are far preferable in this environment than chocolate, which is why otherwise-top tier treats such as the original ice cream sandwich and cookies and cream ice cream sandwich are slightly further down the list.
With all this said, here is my definitive top 10 ice cream truck treats:
1. Strawberry Shortcake
2. Original Bomb Pop
3. Lemon Chill
4. Ice Cream Sandwich
5. Jolly Rancher Snow Cone
6. Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Sandwich
7. Chips Galore
8. Watermelon Bomb Pop
9. Tear Jerker Bomb Pop
10. Vanilla Bar
Everything else can go take a hike.
