ice cream trucks

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream

I have been meaning to do a post about Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream and then when I was visiting Nikki last week, we spotted the truck! The perfect reminder and a chance to get a picture of the truck in person. However, the combination of having just finished a delicious and large brunch at The Park and it being 11am left us without the room nor the strong desire for a sweet treat. I know, sad because now I’m writing about it and unable to say for sure how delicious the ice cream is, but I have no doubts. All of their flavors (vanilla, chocolate, pistachio, hazelnut, ginger, coffee, giandujia, red currant, strawberry, and peppermint & chip) are 100% natural with 3 main ingredients: fresh hormone free milk/cream + egg yolks + pure cane sugar.  A husband and wife team started the company in Spring 2008 and already three of these cute yellow trucks can be spotted on the streets of New York City, as well as a new store in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I love the story and the quality of the ice cream. Next time I see the truck I promise I’ll try it and report back. Or maybe Nikki will try sooner and let us know how it is! :)

What flavor is most appealing to you? Has anyone tried already?
