The world’s first amphibious ice cream van, the HMS Flake 99, has already made its maiden voyage and marked the begining of National Ice Cream Week that will end on 5 June, 2011.

This remarkable sailing soft serve truck is an unsual creation by Frederick's, a well-known company that makes delicious Cadbury’s ice cream. HMS Flake 99 has a top speed of five knots on water and features a chime that plays Rod Stewart’s ‘We are Sailing.’

 The amphibious ice cream van has sailed the River Thames and is planning to sail across the English Channel and reach the canals of Venice to give a summer treat. Check the video of the world’s first amphibious ice cream vehicle out here and refersh yourself.
