You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream!

There’s nothing better on a hot day than an ice cream cone, but how about a cone with a funky twist?  

Fond memories of childhood include hearing the sounds of the ice cream truck entering your neighbourhood, scrambling to grab change and running out to purchase your favourite tasty treat. 

For a while, ice cream trucks seemed to be a thing of the past, but now, they are making a comeback in a big way. 

Lickity Drippity, a Nanaimo based ice cream truck, is bringing their delicious and wacky treats to the public.

The ice cream truck offers a variety of soft serve flavours, all made from a Canada based creamery, including red velvet, blueberry, mint, strawberry, espresso, black vanilla, bubble gum and more. 

On top of these delicious flavours, the frozen treats come with a lot of character—some including googly eyes and marshmallow noses!

For an extra charge you can add a dip or add toppings such as skor toffee bites, sprinkles and dipped marshmallows. 

Lickity Drippity doesn’t just sell ice cream, however, you can also purchase popsicles, sundaes, cotton candy, popcorn and mini donuts—everything you need in one stop!

Stay up to date with all the delicious treats on Facebook and Instagram.
