The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a Mister Softee truck in New York City. The legendary ice cream truck is a staple on the streets in the summer. The company started in Philadelphia in 1956, but now operates in 15 states. The soft serve ice cream towers on a cone and looks best when covered in rainbow sprinkles. So this summer listen for the Mister Softee jingle in your neighborhood when the temperatures start to rise.
