After my root canal last night, my mouth was pretty sore and I wasn’t up for eating anything to crunchy or chewy. This actually gave me the perfect opportunity to try out an ice cream place I’ve been dying to try!
A popular food truck called “The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck” parks just one block from my apartment in the summer, so when I saw a groupon that was $5 for $10 worth of ice cream, I couldn’t resist!
Of course I didn’t end up using the groupon until the truck was done for the season, so I had to go to their new store in the East Village. It was a pretty warm night and a nice walk, so I’m not complaining! Plus, the ice cream did not disappoint. It was absolutely delicious!
I got the “Salty Pimp,” which is vanilla ice cream with dulce de leche, sea salt, and chocolate dip. The soft serve ice cream was so creamy and the salt paired so well with the caramel and chocolate. It was really a treat.
It looks a bit funny, because I had them take off the cone–I couldn’t bit into it.
Andrew got apple soft serve with apple butter. It was so good too. I couldn’t decide which one I liked better and, apparently, neither could he since he definitely ate all of his and then at least half of mine!
I’ll definitely be back–even without the Groupon. They have so many interesting toppings that I just can’t wait to try! And then others like wasabi pea dust that I think I can probably live without….
