HMS Flake 99 Is World’s First Amphibious Ice Cream Truck
Frederick's Ice Cream commissions an amphibious vessel to be the world's first ice cream truck to travel on both land and water.
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.
