Is there a more beloved sound of childhood than the sound of the ice cream truck? It's part of a glorious tradition: the anticipation of waiting for the truck to come, the fun of racing down the street to greet it, the delicious charge of choosing your treat. Whether you loved Chipwiches (or It's-Its for West Coasters), Choco Tacos, or even those Mickey Mouse-shaped ice cream pops with bubble gum eyeballs, ice cream novelties are undoubtedly one of the best parts of summer.

Though now Mister Softee taunts us through the windows of our office, we can still get our Good Humor or Rocket Pop fix from the freezer case. Here's our favorite picks.
