This food truck was a real find! Â Lake Street Creamery is a Gourmet Ice Cream Truck with really delicious and unusual flavors. Â 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. Â Deal with it.”) Â 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. Â I tried them all! Â 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). Â When I visited the truck recently, they had a special flavor called “The Don Draper.” Its ingredients include vanilla, caramel, bourbon and smoke.Â Â It was great to be able toÂ enjoyÂ my favorite tv show about mid-century ad execsÂ in the form of a frozen dessert!Â Â How to find the Lake Street Creamery Truck: Â 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.
