Good Humor Supplies Drop

Summer’s over. Or it might as well be for lovers of Good Humor ice cream as the company suffers from a shortage of some of its most classic brands, like the Chocolate Éclair or Candy-Center Crunch. “Primarily due to the unprecedented warm spring weather, as well as the routine challenges presented when production moves from one plant to others, some iconic Good Humor brands are in shorter supply via mobile vending units,” said company spokesman Caroline Krajewski. Last year the company trimmed its workforce by about 400 employees and shut an ice cream plant in Maryland. The company’s trucks, a staple of the American summer for many, first took to the streets in 1920.
