Good article in the paper today about ice cream vans by Joe Moran telling the tale of their sad decline.
I don’t agree with Joe about how to save ICV's by turning them into tasteful mobile organic sorbet dispensers isn’t the way forward. Surely their appeal lies in the fact that they are gaudy and loud and that they sell things that’s aren't good for you but strangely are.
Isn’t the anarchism of one Mr Whippy worth a hundred lorry loads of taste the difference sunblushed hand picked vine grown kumquat and mung bean frozen yoghurt?
If you need a fix of these mobile pop art explosions have a look here.
lastly I can hear someone playing a tinny version of “Clair d’lune” so mine’s a 99 with juice and nuts, the little’ns will have a cider lolly and a screw ball and Our Nan will have an Oyster with Cornish not whippy and be careful crossing that road.
