This food truck was a real find! Lake Street Creamery is a Gourmet Ice Cream Truck with really delicious and unusual flavors. The regular menu includes such flavors as “Pancake Breakfast” (made with flapjacks, maple syrup, bits of real bacon and a sprinkling of fresh-ground Peaberry coffee; “not for vegetarians or the excitable”); “Donut” (tastes just like a cake donut), “Aztec Sacrifice” (spicy chocolate made with chiles and cayenne pepper), “Black Jack” (“It’s Black Licorice. Deal with it.”) and “Holiday Chocolate” (made with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger).
The Ice Cream is served in tasty waffle bowls (“in a futile attempt to save the planet”) and they serve you really generous scoops as well as very generous tastes of any flavor you want to try. I tried them all! They also make special Ice Cream Floats such as “Jelly Donut” (Donut Ice Cream with Black Cherry Soda) and “Coffee and a Donut” (Donut Ice Cream and Iced Coffee). When I visited the truck recently, they had a special flavor called “The Don Draper.” Its ingredients include vanilla, caramel, bourbon and smoke. It was great to be able to enjoy my favorite tv show about mid-century ad execs in the form of a frozen dessert! How to find the Lake Street Creamery Truck: they post a calendar on their website www.lakestreetcreamery.com.
UPDATE: THE LAKE STREET CREAMERY TRUCK IS SADLY NO MORE. I WILL HAVE TO MAKE MY OWN DON DRAPER ICE CREAM AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET “SMOKE” FLAVORING.
