Brooklyn Mom Tries to Get Ice Cream Man Removed From Park Grounds

Moms Want the Ice Cream Man to Take a Hike

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! When youngsters hear that jingle far off in the distance announcing the ice cream truck's impending arrival, they screech for joy and run to their parents begging for cash and permission. On a hot day, many parents will be hard pressed to deny their child the joy of an orange Push-Up, a chocolate Chip-Wich, or a banana and fudge flavored Bullet. But a group of New York mamas are incensed with the ice cream man that parks his goods near the playground. While one of the quoted mothers claims to have nothing against the vendor's profession, she is rallying the troops to demand he move locations. Park regulars are irritated that they frequently have to deny their children the cold treat, often resulting in sidewalk meltdowns, or buy their tot the sugar filled dessert. Others say let the ice cream man be and practice a lesson in telling their children no.

If Mister Softee was consistently parked in front of your child's hot spots, would you be upset?
