Trying to identify a book I read in middle school.

Trying to identify a science fiction book I read:

* I read it in middle school, so published in 1987 or earlier. But it wasn't super old feeling, so probably 70s at earliest.
* It was a YA (or whatever middle grade books were classified as back then), not an "adult" book.
* The basic premise was a kid (or maybe a kid and his brother) went into this new ice cream shop that hadn't been there before. The store had all kinds of weird flavors, I think. When they came out, they were in the future - everything was skyscrapers, people were bald and wore shiny one piece outfits. It was somewhat dystopian, though, and the kid(s) have to flee into the wilderness to avoid the cops.
* The cover was definitely the kid(s) coming out of the store and being surprised by bald people in the shiny unitards.

Help me, people of the future!

Sorry, it's The Tutti Frutti Connection. Check out the unitard aliens on the cover ;)

That's it! I'd forgotten about the slidewalks.
