Back a hundred years a go or so when I was a kid we had two kinds of ice cream cones...one from Tastee-Freeze, a free standing walk up ice cream stand, or Mr. Softee a concession stand truck that would drive around the neighborhoods selling ice cream..so yesterday I was in Springfield and while there I stopped by Andys .....it was instant flash back...taste and texture just like what I rememberd from the 1950's...good stuff
DANG, Pirate ! don't do this to us at Lunch time !!
In N. Texas, we had Tastee Freeze and Frosty Freeze... as well as A&W Root beer stands. Remember the ice cream trucks that'd come by your house, and you could get a popcicle or ice cream bar for 5 cents !!
A&W came a little later to our town...first mr. softee truck was actually an army surplus jeep with a freezer attached to the back selling popcicles..then later mr softee got a regular truck and started selling soft ice cream in addition to other things.he would run up and down the streets ringing his bell and selling his treats
I liked the dreamcicle best...orange on the outside, white on the inside....hahahahh just checked internet, mr softee is still in business and the trucks have not changed from 1959..except they are newer
ours werent that big. and had no service window. Just a large retangular freezer box in back with 6-8 compartments to store ice cream. Doors opened on the sides and back of the truck (compartment). Played loud jingling music as he drove down thre street. Kids could hear that for miles. man do I rememeber those... lifesavers in the summer heat !
We just had evaporative AC in W Texas. If you weren't within 3 feet of the AC, you were subject to a "Romney".... spontaneous combustion !
Did not have a/c when I was a kid...August seemed to be real sticky...one radio station I worked for had evaporative a/c placed right out side the announcers booth....so it stayed cool most of the time
Yeah , home made ice cream was especially good... used real cream and lots of it. Never had any until I went to my great Aunt's farm in Farmersville, TX. You got that right MrB... I thought i knew ice cream, but i DIDN'T . . until I ate hers !!
