Close your eyes. Take a mental journey with us. You're nine years old, sitting home alone on a Tuesday afternoon in the summer time. You're bored. Your parents are at work, and your older brother is supposed to be watching you, but he's on the landline chatting with Stacey from summer school. Suddenly, your ears perk up. Could it be? It is! The ice cream truck is coming around the corner! Pockets stuffed to bursting with one dollar bills and loose change, you sprint to the sidewalk. Too late, you realize, that this isn't the happy-go-lucky, smile-infested truck of your wildest, ice-creamiest dreams, but rather, a vehicle of nightmares. Yes, your worst fears have come true. You have stumbled on the creepy ice cream truck, the one that no child ever dare approach.  

We all know exactly what the creepy ice cream truck looks and sounds like. Windowless van. Vague, fading stickers. Bizarre, flavorless products. An old, wheezing rendition of "All Around the Mulberry Bush" bleating helplessly from the speakers like a dying animal. The driver smells like old soup and dirty sneakers, and is probably wearing a clown mask. You hang your head and go back inside, too scared to ask for a Popsicle, or even a soft-serve cone. 

We've put together a list of the creepiest ice cream trucks on the block so that you'll know which ones to avoid during the next summer heatwave. Vote up the creepiest ice cream trucks you see below, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section.
