An ice cream popsicle to this day shakes loose childhood memories of the Good Humor ice cream man. It was a novelty for my brothers and me as the Good Humor truck did not come to our part of the world. We had to visit cousins on Long Island to see the Good Humor man. Oh, how I wished we lived on Long Island … the beach, Carvel Ice Cream shop up the street and the Good Humor man driving through the neighborhood every evening during the summer … ah, kid heaven!
The driver pulled the cord on the chimes as he drove slowly signaling he was there. Children up and down the street would dash out front doors and race to the truck so as not to miss out on a cold treat. The driver dressed in a starched, bright white uniform and two-corner hat with a coin changer attached to his belt, would jump out of the sparkling clean truck. He would walk to the large square door with a giant image of a chocolate ice cream popsicle and open the thick door as the freezing cold escaped into the hot summer air. Surrounded by little girls and boys he would reach in and snatch the cold treats and dispense ice cream to each youngster one-by-one. We patiently waited our turn while holding on tightly to 15 cents in our little hands, trying to choose the best item from the large colorful menu.
