(WUSA) - As if the summer's first heat wave is not bad enough, Good Humor's ice cream fans are suffering a bigger meltdown.

Parent company Unilever PLC said Wednesday that high sales during the spring and the pending Hagerstown factory shutdown have caused difficulty in supplying ice cream trucks with the region's most popular ice cream flavors.

Fans of the classic Toasted Almond, Candy Center Crunch, and the Chocolate Eclair bars may have to search a littler harder to find them.

The supply problems should be resolved by mid-summer according to the British-Dutch conglomerate.

But the company's statement did little to cool down Brian Collis of Latham, N.Y. Scarcity of the ice cream bars took a 5 percent bite out of his Mr. Ding-a-Ling ice cream truck sales.
