July is National Ice Cream Month, and to celebrate I've created a well considered top ten list of the best ice cream novelties to enjoy this month (or whenever you want, you nonconformist, you!).

Ok! Let's start with THINGS FOUND ON AN ICE CREAM TRUCK 

#10

Flintstones Push Up

1 ic

So much better than Flintstones vitamins

 

Hands down most fun (messy) thing to eat from the ice cream truck!  The best flavor was blue but for some reason they always only had orange, which was also really great.

 

#9 Strawberry Shortcake

straw

Yum!!

 

#8 Creamsicles

!!!!

 

Perfect if you could never decide whether to get ice cream or a popsicle and were sent in to a panic every time the familiar ice cream truck music twinkled faintly in the breeze.

#7 Generic Ice Cream Sandwiches

Seriously, the more plain the better! The ones from my elementary school pizza day were the BEST! Who knows where they came from?!? I remember them being wrapped in plain white paper. Honorable  mention to generic tubs of  ice cream with the little wooden spoons attached on top.

 

#6 Rocket Pops

SOOO GOOD! SO PATRIOTIC! MUY REFRESCANTE!!

#5  Glove with Gumball Baseball

1

Delicious! Great way for kids to sneak gum into the house! Most of the time looked like this when you took it out of the package...

2

Still good!

#4 (#1 best thing from the ice cream truck) Mickey with "Chocolate" Covered Ears

 

3

Look how cute!

I think the ears were actually coated with whatever Swiss Rolls are coated with... but they are still so good due to a smushy ice cream texture and vague chocolate/vanilla flavors.

 

OK! The top three are comprised of  TREATS FROM AN ICE CREAM SHOP  (because sometimes you just can't find enough quarters rolling around in the couch in time to catch the ice cream truck)

#3 Clown Cones from Baskin Robbins

" Yes, I'd like twelve clown cones, please"

 

I love these because they are the best parts of an ice cream cake,  the frozen icing and ice cream. Mint chocolate chip was my favorite flavor. I requested these for my sixteenth birthday. No shame, best party ever!

#2 Root Beer Float

RBF

 

The ice cream foam at the top !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

#1 DQ Cherry Dip

cherry dipTHIS IS THE BEST!!! NO ARGUING !
