Ice Cream Truck Beginnings
Though they’ve been around since the beginning of the 20th century, ice cream trucks became incredibly popular in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1950s.
The ice cream trucks of that time were very different from the ones we see traveling the streets today.
Ice cream tubs were kept cold in dry ice and the vendor had to completely turn off the van before serving ice cream to his clients.
The First Novelties Sold from Ice Cream Trucks
Good Humor Ice Cream Bars were one of the first novelty treats to be sold through ice cream trucks.
In the 1920, before ice cream trucks were popular, a man named Harry Burt invented his Good Humor Ice Cream Bar and created a unique marketing scheme.
He planned to sell his new creation from a fleet of white ice cream trucks! Each truck had bells to make clients aware of their presence and was driven by a uniformed driver.
