We're feeling that summer time heat in Michigan, and with those warms temps come ways to combat the heat. Enter; the ice cream man.

Your friendly neighborhood ice cream man can be heard well around the block. Heck, on a clear evening you can hear the familiar tunes clear across the neighborhood. And I don't know about you, but even as an adult, I'm about to head outside as quickly as possible with my cash in hand.

Trucks That Should Drive Through Neighborhoods Like the Ice Cream Man

But, as much as I love the ice cream man, I could totally get down with some other kind of truck driving through the neighborhood.

I saw this TikTok about the elote man driving through someone's neighborhood, and I was like, why don't we have one of those? So, to kick off the list of 5 trucks I'd like to see driving through my neighborhood...

The Elote Man

Elote and agua fresca? Absolutely, you can definitely count me in for that.

The Booze Man

Colorful cocktails

I feel like this one is self explanatory. I want a person to take a portable bar, drive it through my neighborhood and make me fresh piña coladas? What's so hard to understand about that?

Mobile Dog Running Truck

As someone who is the owner of a dog who always loves a run, I feel like this would be so helpful and practical.

The Hot Chocolate Man


I know we've been talking about summer, but winter in Michigan needs some love too. And I would wholeheartedly run out of the house in a jacket to catch the hot chocolate man as he ran down the street.

The Taco Man

Spicy Homemade Beef Barbacoa Tacos with Cilantro Cheese and Onion

I know we did the Elote man, but I'm gonna need a separate taco man. I feel like elote, that's just a snack. But the taco man, he could bring a whole family sized dinner with him and that way know one would need to cook dinner.
