There is absolutely nothing additional nostalgia-inducing than the chimes of a Mr Whippy van driving down your street, belting that well known ice-product truck tune.
In celebration of Sydney Homosexual and Lesbian Mardi Gras, a Mr Whippy van will be popping up about Sydney and dishing out cost-free ice creams in two around-the-top flavours. The Rainbow Rise features a basic waffle cone, vanilla tender serve and rainbow sprinkles, while the Enjoy Out Loud is a dazzling pink velvet waffle cone filled with vanilla delicate serve and drizzled with strawberry sauce and tutti frutti popcorn items.
The van, sponsored by W Hotels, will be rocking up to two locations this Saturday, February 26, to dole out the merchandise – the Coogee Beach Rainbow Walkway (at the corner of Arden Road and Coogee Bay Highway) from 10am-11.30am, and North Bondi Surf Daily life Preserving Club (on Campbell Parade) from 2.30pm-5pm.
If you come upon the van in the wild, you are going to also detect a new spin on the traditional Mr Whippy tune (‘Greensleeves’ for the uninitiated), provided an edgy remix by drag queen superstar Courtney Act and drag DJ-duo Jawbreakers.
If you are one particular of the blessed individuals lining up to rating a no cost cone, you can also scan a QR code to indicator up as a Marriott Bonvoy member and go into the draw to win a two-night time staycation at any W Lodge all-around Australia – seems like a wonderful way to recuperate from your Mardi Gras period.
