The Wyliepalooza Ice-Cream Truck
Its eclectic playlist consists of songs by Lady Gaga, Doris Day, Maroon 5, and more. “It’s my ice-cream truck, and I’ll play what I want to,” Patty Timmons jokes.
John Harrison has a job everybody wants. This fourth-generation ice cream lover is the official taste tester for Edy’s ice cream. “It was destiny, I guess,” Harrison says. “This line of work got into me.” His family has been in the ice cream business—making, developing, or tasting ice cream—since 1880, all the way back to Harrison’s great-grandfather. Harrison alone has been tasting and developing ice cream flavors for more than 30 years. The most famous flavor he’s developed: Cookies and Cream. Harrison is traveling the country now to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Cookies and Cream.
