The Ice Cream Truck Cometh…with a Nestlé Drumstick and $100 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway
Do you remember that period of sweet innocence – you know, that period of time when your firstborn is too small to realize the ice cream truck that drives by your home actually is carrying ice cream and isn’t just the ‘crazy music truck’ that you sweetly explain that it is? The period when you hope your toddler is sleeping soundly before the ‘crazy music truck’ comes by so you can go get a Nestlé® Drumstick® for yourself and totally not have to share?!
Yeah, those blissful ice cream hoarding years clearly don’t last long enough.
Pretty soon the oldest kid figures it out and tells her little sister and then BOOM! Drumsticks for all! The ‘crazy music truck’ turns into the ‘Hey Mom, can we have $3?’ truck and I’m all like, “Well, no, you need $4 because you need to buy one for me too!”
Every Monday and Friday at about 6:30 pm from April until September we listen for the music. My two-year-old, I swear, can hear it five blocks away. Our neighborhood is filled with kids, and all of them swarm to the ice cream truck and wait in line for their $1 ice cream. I admit I’ve taught my kids to appreciate the good stuff when it comes to ice cream – go for the chocolate or caramel. Of course, this way I will like what they cannot finish. Ahem.
To get through those days between the ice cream truck visits we keep a box of the small Lil’ Drums for just the perfect treat. (Also, I can eat them and not feel guilty, at least until I realize I’ve eaten the last one – I am usually so busted). Also, who taught these kids how to count? They are totally keeping track of my copious ice cream consumption.
I’ve always been a major Classic Drumstick fan, but have you checked out their new flavors? They are simply amazing. Who can resist Pretzel Dipped Drumstick cones, and the new Lil’ Drums Caramel Delights: Vanilla Caramel Crunch and, oh my word, Caramel Graham? It makes me want to just host an ice cream party and maybe even invite all of the kids! Nestlé Drumsticks are such an easy dessert for those summer BBQs everyone loves! Check out all the new flavors on the Nestlé Drumstick Facebook page!
Summer is right around the corner, so it’s time to get my freezer stocked! We plan to host many parties in the backyard this season.
And now Nestlé and I want to make your summer planning even easier!
