The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck
Signature Item: Choinkwich: chocolate soft-serve and caramelized bacon sandwiched between two chocolate cartwheel cookies.
Concept: Innovative toppings. In the spring of 2009, classically trained bassoonist Doug Quint was contemplating what to do for his summer. It was a friend’s Facebook post that planted the seed for Doug to start a soft-serve truck with ever-changing toppings. Wasabi? Yes. Sea salt and olive oil. Oh, yeah. Trix cereal? Bring it on.
Our favorite creation: The Salty Pimp — creamy vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche, and sea salt, covered with a chocolate magic shell.
