Hong Kong Softee Car
The Ice-cream vehicle started from 1956 in U.S.A.. In Hong Kong, it’s call “Mobile Softee”
That the first truck, which had been imported from England, began to operate in 1970. Each van, as required by the law, comprises a soft ice cream making machine, a basin, and two refrigerators. Thus there is only one ice cream making machine on each van, vanilla is the only flavour as usual. As the Hong Kong Government has stopped the issue of new hawking licenses since 1978, the company has only 14 ice cream vans running on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. The red, white, and blue exterior of the trucks together with the The Blue Danube tune they play are part of the collective memory of many Hong Kongers.
