Karmic's 'new' 1935 hot rod ice cream truck delivers treats, nostalgia

1935 Ford ice cream truck

(August 20, 2019) CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. — With war on the horizon and the Great Depression gripping the country, Americans in the 1930s took solace in simple, wholesome pleasures: the final days of Babe Ruth's career; Benny Goodman swinging on the Hit Parade, the first Technicolor Mickey Mouse short on the big screen.

And the cold comfort that only ice cream can provide.

With the unveiling of its 1935 Ford hot rod ice cream truck, Karmic Ice Cream transports South Florida residents back to those bittersweet days — with an emphasis on the "sweet." Frozen novelty lovers as well as classic trucks buffs will be enchanted by the latest addition to Karmic's fleet of vintage ice cream delivery vehicles.

Coral Springs-based Karmic's "new" ice cream truck is the perfect centerpiece for any celebration from company picnics, to block parties, to sports tournaments, and anywhere friends gather from Miami to Boynton Beach.

A converted classic 1935 Ford Model 50 pickup, this 345-horsepower hot rod is as cool as the delicious cargo it hauls. It will top 100 mph, but truly draws a crowd when it's sitting still, dispensing goodies from Good Humor, Ben & Jerry's, Popsicle, Klondike, and more. Whether customers crave a Choco Taco, Push-up, Strawberry Shortcake, or the traditional ice cream sandwich, an ice cream truck rental from Karmic is sure to be the life of the party.

South Florida's acknowledged Purveyors of Happiness, Karmic Ice Cream recreates the nostalgic days the ringing of a bell send children and adults alike running, the chants of "Ice Cream Man!" filling the air.

Karmic Ice Cream rents a fleet of ice cream trucks, pushcarts, and even a Harley-Davidson motorcycle with freezer sidecar that will make your event the talk of the town. Everyone will want their picture taken with an ice cream truck dating from 1931, 1935, or 1958, along with a Karmic Happiness Ambassador handing out their favorite frozen treat.

"Hiring one or more of our ice cream pushcarts and trucks ensures every guest will not only enjoy a tasty ice cream dessert," said Karmic Ice Cream owner Deborah Popkin. "They also can create new memories while reliving a bit of their childhood – or the childhood they wish they had!"
