I forsee a lot of business coming from my house for the delicias man this summer. He walks around the neighborhood sometimes with one of those old-fashioned ice cream push-carts, ringing the bell on it. Super Girl came running in, wanting to know if she could buy a "popsicle". I figured it was going to be a freeze pop (she only wanted a dollar, and I know how over-priced they are). I gave Wonder Boy a dollar, too. When I saw what he came back with, I hustled to get my own dollar! He had some sort of Mexican ice cream bar - chocolate covered strawberry. I hurried out to the man and his cart, which, thankfully, were stopped across the street. He listed off all the flavors he had, and I chose coconut. He had a lot of flavors, most of them fruit. I mean actual, real fruit. Wonder Boy's had big pieces of strawberry in the ice cream, and mine had nice chunks of coconut. It was SOOOOOO GOOOOOOD!!! I think I'm going to have to start keeping a few dollars on hand this summer, especially since I got 3 ice creams for the price one would be from the ice cream truck. I won't be able to get one for us all the time, but it's nice to know I can let the kids have a treat sometimes at a more affordable price (and with some real fruit in the mix, too!).
