A family-owned ice cream truck in the Black Hills was one of 18 ice cream parlors around the nation to get $1,000 each from Blue Bunny Ice Cream last week to celebrate National Ice Cream Week.
Each parlor was to use the money to give free ice cream and ice cream treats to customers, and Frosty’s Ice Cream Truck in Whitewood did it’s giveaway on Friday.
Family matriarch Rachel Papenfuss says they bought the truck from another family only about a month ago, so were very surprised to be picked by Blue Bunny.
She says the community response has been overwhelming with customers of all ages loving the truck, which is driven Papenfuss’s 2 sons and daughter. She says they’re loving the work while having fun and getting to know everybody in town.
