In celebration of this year’s National Ice Cream Week, Frederick’s Ice Cream commissioned a unique vessel, the HMS Flake 99, to be the world’s very first amhibious ice cream truck, capable of traveling in both land and in water. From Design Bloom:

The ‘HMS Flake 99’ is meant to draw attention to the decrease in ice cream trucks– from 20,000 in 1960 to 5,000 in operation today– as a result of council bans on the vehicles in certain zones, concerns about noise pollution and childhood obesity, and rising fuel costs.
