Pottsville’s ‘Mrs. Softee’ Celebrates 30 Years
Summer is coming to an end, but the neighborhood icecream truck still has some time left. The Mr. Softee truck in Schuylkill county sure isn’t going anywhere soon. It’s been operating for three decades.
That familiar jovial song means one thing: You better go and ask mom for some money, because the ice cream man coming! But don’t call the operator of this truck ‘Mister Softee.’
She says she drowned the Mr. Softee tune out after all these years, and says she keeps getting behind the wheel every summer because of her customers
The usual route for her is Pottsville, Schuylkill Haven and Minersville and special events, like her annual visit to the senior center.
She’s only around for a little while longer, but there’s still enough summer left to catch one of these sweet treats.
