Detailed by The Local, residents of the Swedish town of Eslov have complained so much about the loud music playing on the speaker of the local ice cream truck that the ice cream company plans to silence the jingles in favor of silent text messages. Residents filed an official complaint about the music due to an increase in volume during the winter months. According to Engelholm ice-cream president Carl Gustaf Gudmundsson, the driver increased the volume in order to attract more kids and adults out of the home since most are inside staying warm.

The ice cream truck runs in the winter?

I like this idea. The ice cream man rolls through my neighborhood so fast I can never get my kid out of the house fast enough to catch him. Poor kid still doesn't know what an ice cream truck is.

I would prefer a txt message. I am more likely to hear my phone than the Ice Cream truck.
