If we were implored to rattle off our top ten things in the universe, you can bet your rubber ducky that cars, boats and ice cream would be featured prominently. Thanks to the enterprising spirit of the good folks at Cadbury, we can now make a little more room on our list.
The 'HMS Flake 99' is an amphibious ice cream truck that serves delicious treats up and down the Thames river in London, complete with the melodic tones of more land-based machines. The craft was commissioned to honor the UK's National Ice Cream week, though InHabitat reports that the machine may make a tour of various beaches in upcoming months.
It is rumoured that the 'HMS Flake 99' might head to Venice but we'd like to see it turn up at the docks near the Autoblog Canada downtown Toronto office.
So, Canada, are you going to stand for this? With summer vacation season in high gear, there are scores of sugar-hungry kids just waiting to chow down on their ice cream sandwiches on the beaches and lakes of our great nation. Someone please think of the children and build an H.M.C.S Chapman's. In the meantime, hit the jump to see the 'HMS Flake 99' on the high seas.
