Cream Chargers - Cali and Jody

A couple of my friends have really taken on a new lease of life. Who would have thought there is money to be made in a van powered by whipped cream? Actually, it's diesel but the summer has been so successful so far that they're opening the store called cream chargers to continue the work online.

To cut a long story somewhat shorter they used an old ice cream van and (I think) mainly due to the fact that it didn't have a functioning freezer they adapted it to sell whipped cream with fruit. You could even say that it is promoting their 5-a-day and she get government fun ding.

The van is so cute that it's almost painfully sweet - unlike the healthy options of the cream and fruit. The whole story can be read on their blog for those of you that are interested in the story. It certainly does make for some interesting ideas and they are a bit cack-handed in their amateur approach, but I suspect that is part of the reason why it all worked out so well for them.

 But remember it's not the ice that sells it's the cream and without the whipping cream charegrs it would be drip, drip, drip all the way down your chin!!!
