My mother used to tell us that the ice-cream van man peed in the ice-cream. So we never asked for ice-cream when he came down our street.

My mommy told me that if i messed with my belly button, it would unravel and my guts would fall out!!
She also said the ice-cream van was called the 'ding-dong' man and he came round the streets playing music to the children at bedtime!! (I later found out this was actually 5PM! - I was eleven when i realised he actually SOLD ice-creams!!!)

My dad always told me the Ice-cream van was the manure truck and he told me "wow isn't it so nice of them to play music for the kids and bring healthy manure for everyone's gardens?" I didn't know otherwise until I moved to the U.S and a friend of mine told me they sold ice cream.

We didn't have a lot of extra money to buy ice cream whenever we felt like it, so my mom told me and my sister that we didn't have an ice cream man in the area, only a music man. We thought that the music man was just a big fan of ice cream with his ice cream wall paper, and that he was just driving by to play a little music for us.

A guy I know used to tell his kids that when the ice cream man played his chimes he didn't have any ice cream left. Saved him a fortune until they got wise to him!

My parents used to swear that only they could tell the difference between the 'musical bus' and an actual ice cream van. We used to run round the house to find them and excitedly ask, "is that the ice cream van?"

"....no, musical bus" they almost invariably replied.

Brown ice-cream trucks sold drugs, otherwise known as "pipe" to some of my strange friends.

My mom told us that the ice cream van was a "music truck", that rode around the neighborhood making nice music for everyone. Finally, my older sister went to day camp, and found out the truth. She said, "you know what! The music truck *sells ICE CREAM*!"

For some reason, whenever the ice cream van came into our area, I always seemed to hear it and never see it. I used to think the tinkly type music came from heaven, and it was years before I finally put 2 and 2 together.

I used to get 50p for the ice-cream van, and I always wanted to get a 99 (an ice cream with a flake) but I never asked for one because I assumed they were 99p, one day I asked my mum for a pound so I could get one, and she started to shout at the ice-cream man for over charging me! Poor ice-cream man, haha!

When I was little, my Mom told me that the truck that goes down the street in the summer was a "music truck," Later I came up and told her:
"Mommy guess what, the music truck delivers *ice cream.* (It was really an ice cream truck.)

When I was younger I lived in a terraced street...Me and my friends would all play out the back, climb trees, knock on doors, that sort of stuff. Anyway, there were always icecream men that came, 3 or four a day. Well because all kids have eyes bigger than there bellies, i wanted an icecream from every van that came. My mam clearly didnt like this so she told me that all the icecream had spiders in them except one van who was coincedently the cheapest. From then on I believed this and my mam saved lots of money!
