We're all trying to cope with the fact that the blistering summer months are upon us, and Halloween still seems so far away... but horror & pop culture blog Freddy In Space has at least found a way to bring the best of both worlds together, in the form of some fun concepts for horror-themed ice cream treats.
Designed by artist Frank Browning, these beauties are based on horror characters old and new, while faithfully recreating the original advertising art normally plastered on ice cream trucks.
Those of you lucky enough to have grown up with regular summer visits from the ice cream man and trips to the horror section local video store, these combine those memories in one convenient place.
While I do fondly recall superhero-themed ice cream shapes, I admit it I was bummed that they didn't actually make any monster-shaped pops... at least my neighborhood ice cream guy didn't have any. But damn, who wouldn't have bought a handful of these, even if they ended up melting on the walk home? (I was kinda hoping the Captain Spaulding pop would be "Tutti-Fuckin-Frutti" flavor, but why complain?)
Drop by Freddy In Space for a look at the whole gallery... and they promise more to come!
