Mr. Softee is mobile soft serve at your door. Herby has been driving the truck for as long as I can remember and makes nightly trips in every season but winter. He has chocolate and vanilla soft serve, but I always get a twist, which is a combination of chocolate and vanilla.
He also has other frozen treats including the popular character treats and floats. You know when he is in the neighborhood as the van is announced with the ‘do your ears hang low’ song. For more flavors and other treats, you can visit the ice cream stand in Athens, which is owned by Herby’s parents.
