Mr. Softee
I mean the ice cream, not my ex-boyfriend, lol! Cheap joke :) But seriously, have you had the soft-serve ice cream from one of their trucks? I love chocolate but the soft-serve vanilla is to die for.

I was having a hellish afternoon, running around the city in the 75 degree sun, sweating through my new smart cotton dress shirt, trying to get video camera footage transported to VHS. Like a beacon of light I spotted a Mr. Softee truck on the street corner. I said to myself, "Self, you deserve some cold ice cream."

Since I had several bags hanging from around my neck and holding my discarded jacket in one hand, I couldn't eat my ice cream with the blue spoon they gave me. So not wanting to wait, I put my face right into the cup of delicious flavorful fluff while continuing walking. It was heaven in a cup! I finally found a bench outside of a health gym. Needless to say I got angry and coveting looks from the people coming in and out of the gym, who thought I was there to mock or temp them, haha.

I used to love running to the truck. My faves were Strawberry Shortcake and Toasted Almond. I'll have to try eating without a spoon, especially in front of gym people!

Oh man.. If they had those things driving through my neighborhood, I'd probably be in jail for carjacking the Mr. Softee mobile. That soft serve stuff is so addictive.

Mister Softee is one of those things that is a part of every city kid's childhood. I couldn't forget the song the trucks play even if I try. I agree, the vanilla is the best (sprinkles required, of course). I was always kind of scared of the power ranger with bubble gum eyeballs though...
