Do you hear that? It’s Mr Whippy coming round the corner of your street. Except something’s different: Mr Whippy’s left his rainbow soft serve and crumbly flakes in the dust – he’s now sporting a 240-litre liquid nitrogen tank. The future is here, fam.

Pop-up ice creamery 196 Below are set to bring their signature liquid nitrogen ice cream on the road with their very own nitro food truck. They’ll be launching at food truck park Welcome to Thornbury this Wednesday August 23 from 5pm until 9pm.

To celebrate the launch, 196 Below will be giving away free ice cream to the masses, including their Golden Gaytime and activated coconut and mango sorbet flavours. We recommend getting there early to avoid missing out.
