There’s nothing like that childhood feeling of hearing the campy music of an ice cream truck coming near. So much excitement, so much anticipation. Everyone loves delicious ice cream. But just because ice cream is universally the best thing a kid can get from a travelling salesman, it doesn’t mean that other good things can’t be sold in these trucks as well. Obviously. There are also Book-Mobiles.
But what else? One of the best questions in the world that often goes unanswered is this: Why not Pickle-Mobiles? What a perfect idea when people are grilling out in the neighborhood. The Pickle Truck pulls up just in time! The perfect accessory for the perfect burger.
BBQ pickles. Mustard pickles. Cheese-filled pickles. Candied pickles. Super Sour pickles. Frozen pickles. Beef jerky flavored pickles. Vanilla pickles. Tossed salad pickles (comes with Ranch tipping sauce). Caffeinated pickles.
In neighborhoods where the Pickle Truck really proves to be the most successful, a pickle buffet would also be incorporated into the event. This would play up to the international, regional, and dietary preferences regarding the love of pickles. The options would include, but not be limited to the following…
Aspartickle: Pickle sweetened with Aspartame, causing it to have fewer carbohydrates but still leaves the person feeling like they should have just got the pickle they really wanted because artificial sweeteners will never really be the same thing as sugar.
Fiberickle: Pickle coated in flax seed to ensure regularity.
Mexickle: Pickle wrapped in a burrito with refried beans.
Chinickle: Pickle fried in a doughy batter that causes the person to still be hungry after eating it.
Heart of Dixickle: Pickle deep fried in sausage bits, dipped in A-1, then wrapped in a buttermilk pancake.
Wickle: Pickle with a chicken wing bone surgically planted inside, to give the feel of eating a chicken wing.
