Many Yellowknifers would agree, but they'll have to wait a little longer for their own ice cream man, Tamer Akbulut. He's scooping cones in Lethbridge, Alta., and won't be up here until mid-July. His absence is raising questions.
During Monday's record-breaking heat, Shane Riley tweeted: "Where is the ice cream truck? Did he leave town?" and "might have to call RCMP and ask them to issue an APB for cold slushies and ice cream!"
And it's not just the ice cream Yellowknifers yearn for. Jan Skeffington said she told her daughter Kate, 3, the ice cream truck was a "music truck," so she wouldn't be tempted to go for the sugary snacks.
