Former Baywatch star Nicole Eggert is taking a break from acting to embark on a new career as an ice cream truck driver.

The actress, 42, recently unveiled her new mint green Scoops truck on her Twitter.com page and has been alerting followers to her location around Los Angeles so they can meet her and pick up a cool, sweet treat.

In a post on Sunday (05Oct14), she wrote, "We are here at Radford and Ventura in Studio City until 1!!! Come get a scoop!!!"

Eggert's "Ice Cream Shoppe on Wheels" offers a selection of ice cream cones, ice cream cakes and candy.

The blonde star isn't the first celebrity to purchase an ice cream truck - Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint famously spent his movie earnings on his own van in 2007.
