With the heat of summer comes the classic sounds of the ice cream truck.

While the idea of mobile food was around before the advent of the ice cream truck, it wasn’t until 1920 that Youngstown’s Harry Burt Sr. conceived of putting a chocolate-coated ice cream bar on a stick,  calling it the Good Humor bar.

Now, melting treats on a stick are ubiquitous with summertime memories.

A sweet lesson — don’t freeze up when your ideas are out of the box, they might just be ahead of their time.
