It was a TV comemrcial for Good Humor ice cream in the 1950s. I'm missing some lines..

I'm the friendly man
Who sells Good Humor,
The ice cream kids all favor.
Made with...
And...
For that...
Real Good Humor flavor.
Oh boy!

Wow, that brings back some old memories! Let's see now,

Made with... pure sweet cream and fresh fruit only


I don't remember the next line. Maybe there's a person who was alive back then and is still memory unimpared who could help.

OK, after a night's sleep, the final line:
(first of all, remove that 'For that')

It is guaranteed to have that real Good Humor flavor
(That's 'flavour' for you folks on the other side.)

Thanks DAD. You're definitely on the right track. "Pure sweet cream and fresh fruit only" feels right but "guaranteed" just doesn't sound familiar.
And "humour," while we're at it.

I'm the friendly man who sells Good Humor
The ice cream kids all favor
Made with pure sweet cream and fresh fruit only
For that creamy tasting real lip smacking flavor
I've got ice cream on a stick
"Can I have a little lick?"
I've got Humorettes and ice sticks that are whopping
I've got cups large and small
"I like chocolate best of all"
Even sundaes topped with rich, deliciou topping
I'm the friendly man who sells Good Humor
The ice cream kids all favor
Made with pure sweet cream and fresh fruit only
It's the ice cream with that real Good Humor flavor

Seems to me it closely resembled "The Wreck of Old '97."

Of course, I haven't heard it since ca1956.

I sent an inquiry through the inquiry resource on the Good Humor website. I also discovered some lyrics other ones than above. (Different tune, too, probly.) And somewhere in there are some very racist lyrics and catch phrases. Also, there is apparently a movie. Wow! Folklore! It sure are instresting!
