Sometimes during the summer in my sort-of poor neighborhood, this certain ice cream truck would make the rounds as late as 9 PM, when it was already dark and no kids were outside. We didn't actually believe it, but my sister and I had this theory that that ice cream truck was actually peddling drugs. We thought there was probably some sort of code, like 'Screwball pop' was, after 9 PM, the code word for 'cocaine'.
I used to belive my Dad when he told me that if the ice-cream van was playing a tune, it meant that it was empty. When I asked about why people were queueing up, he would reply "well, they're going to be very disappointed". I didn't get an ice-cream for years.
When I was little, I couldn't see into the window for the ice cream truck. So I never knew he PUT the soft-serve ice cream in the cone or dish. I thought it was ready-made in the freezer, like popsicles. I was always amazed that our ice cream wasn't squished up.
i always used to believe as a kid that ice creams are made out of animals saliva for their viscous nature and for that particular reason i was bit wary of having icecreams in my early age of infantine until my uncle once took me to an ice cream factory and showed me the whole procedure of manufacturing it .
Our mum told us that the ice-cream van noise was a children's ambulance
When I was a kid, my parents called ice cream trucks "music trucks". They didn't want me to know that the trucks sold ice cream, 'cause they knew I would be demanding ice cream whenever I heard the trucks driving by. I eventually caught on that the trucks sold ice cream and weren't driving around the neighborhood for the sole purpose of playing music. But to this day I still call ice cream trucks "music trucks", and people look at me weird.
Because I was such a persistent child, my parents thought it prudent to tell me that the ice cream van was just a man who went around playing pretty music for the neighbourhood. They thought they were so smart until I was staying with a babysitter and I heard the ice cream man coming. I promptly said "My mom and dad thinks he just plays music but I KNOW he sells ice cream." She thought it was so cute she let me buy some ice cream and when my parents came to get me they found out that the jig was up.
The ice cream van never stopped for long enough for you to get your shoes on and get your money and it only stopped outside so I used to run out in bare feet. I saw some other kids do this too and I actually thought, when I was 5, that this was some sort of ritual to the ice cream man so he'd give us free ice-cream! Never did work though, lol.
when I was Little The Ice Cream Truck began to come Through the Neighbor Hood My Mom Said It was a Hot Dog Truck
I Believed This Until One Day when I was about 5 or 6 I Was on my Way to ( I Can't Remember ) With My Grandma we were Traveling in the Car as It was coming around the court and then I Saw it was An Ice Cream Truck
When I was around 4 or 5, my dad always told me that the ice cream truck was the "music" truck. When he heard it, he would say "Oh, there goes the music truck," so that I woudn't be begging him for ice cream. When I became older, I realized what was really in the truck.
I was about 7 years old when i girl named mikelle biggs went missing and i guess she went to get ice cream and they only found her bike so I was convinced that if I got ice cream from an ice cream truck that I would disappear so I avoided them....until I was 14.
I was told the ice cream truck was a "music truck" so I wouldn't waste my parents' money on ice cream. I believed this for a REAL long time and my family still uses it on the little ones.
My mom used to tell me that the ice cream man wold kidnap me if i went neer him, I didnt believ her so she got one of her rich friends to rent the actual icecream mans truck and get him to fake kidnap me.
I didn't go near him for 5 years 'till my friend told me it was a hoax.
My mum used to tell me the music on the ice cream van was actually the bin man, I heard her telling my 2 year old son this last week and he believed her, I might tell him the truth one day(!)
My dad asked me to get him a 99er from the van one day, so i duly obliged and brought back a small chocolate flake - minus an ice cream.
Dad was not amused and had to run out and get his own from a bemused ice cream man.
when i was little, my mom told me that the ice cream man tried to kidnap little kids, and he froze them and made them into ice cream bars, i have not gotten anything from an ice cream truck since
my mom used to tell me the ice cream truck was just a truck that drove
around and played music for all of the little boys and girls in the neighborhood.
i did not know there was ice cream on the truck.
i asked my step dad why i never see icecream trucks in cali and he said there iligel
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.
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!!!)
