HULL – The audio is so ingrained in our psyches from our childhood summers that it’s challenging not to crave cold delicious treats just thinking about it: the ring-a-ling-a-ling melody blaring from an ice product truck.

No one particular is much more welcome on a scorching summer day than the ice product guy.
