World's First Amphibious Ice Cream Truck Spotted In London! (VIDEO)

by Don Hatfield


It’s not everyday you see an amphibious ice cream truck, but that’s exactly what we’re looking at.  This water-logged treat machine was spotted cruising through the rivers of London on June 1st in celebration of National Ice Cream Week.

Delivering ice-cold summer treats to beach goers and everyone else enjoying the outdoors this summer isn’t this truck’s only mission. According to DailyMail, the truck delivers ice cream by land and sea to raise awareness of the UK’s troubled ice cream truck business. Due to increasing restrictions ice cream trucks are banned from some public places and have seen quite a decline because of it.

The ice cream truck was commissioned by Cadbury and while it may only be floating around London for the time being, there are plans for a national tour. In fact, The HMS Flake 99 may even make its way through the rivers of Venice. Check out the video below if you want to see this one-of-a-kind ice cream truck in action.
