The Belizian Pinky Dinky

In Columbus, I grew up with the Pinky Dinky truck – aka, ice cream truck.  I could hear that music from 2 blocks away and start salivating.  Interestingly, I don’t really have any memories of actually buying ice cream from the famous refrigerated Magic Mobile converted from a mail truck.  Hmmmm….

Anyway, now there is an updated version of that truck here in Georgia, cleverly named the Ice Cream Girl (yeah, it’s pink!).  And now that we live in a neighborhood, my kids will have the joy of that memory as well – with the added benefit of actually eating the goods on occasion.

I am happy to report that the country of Belize is not without their own version of the Pinky Dinky truck.  Technically it is an orange bicycle, there is no refrigeration, and noone who lives there can afford the treat.  But the effort was made and I can proudly say that we Americans became ice cream patrons one day and to my knowledge, are all still alive to tell the tale.

  1. Jen, I love your blog. I can keep up (sort of….at a distance) with your family. I recognize Brad’s stance in the ice-cream truck picture, as well as the boys’, even at a distance. I, too, will skip the “fresh” chicken dinner tonight.

  2. Thanks, mom. The extra boys are neighbors – we didn’t sneak any more grandkids in on you :).
