Ice cream truck comes with free treats, massages and manicures
Sunday 31 July 2011
An ice cream truck touted as "adults-only" is making the rounds across North America, offering free frozen treats as well as massages and manicures on the side.
The Dove Ice Cream truck was launched by actor Ralph Macchio in a ceremony in Chicago Thursday, perhaps best known for his role in the Karate Kid series and his recent stint on Dancing With the Stars.
Developed as a mid-summer stress-buster, the adults-only ice cream truck will feature free activities like massages by licensed massage therapists, manicures, and tunes for the over-18 crowd, in addition to free Dove Ice Cream bars.
Other stops will also include Minneapolis and Baltimore.
July has been a busy month for frozen treats, as ice cream makers turned up the heat during National Ice Cream Month.
To coincide with the movie release of Captain America, Baskin-Robbins launched a limited-time Mini Cone pack featuring their flavor of the month, a patriotic Super-Soldier Swirl, with all the colors of the US flag in Very Berry Strawberry, Vanilla and Cherries Jubilee.
Their regular Mini Cones clock in at 35 to 100 calories and come in packs of 16 and cost $9.99. Flavors include Mint Chocolate Chip, Very Berry Strawberry, Gold Medal Ribbon and Rainbow Sherbet.
