Best Mobile Ice Cream Bar (2011)
The frozen treats on the surf-inspired Longboard's truck start life as simple ice cream bars in one of eight common flavors, such as chocolate, coconut, strawberry and mango. After you order, that's when the magic happens. The ice cream bars are drizzled with curlicues of thick caramel, hand-dipped in Ghirardelli milk chocolate and sprinkled with chopped nuts, coconut flakes, crushed Oreos or waffle-cone pieces. Choose any combo of toppings. Choose them all. In one bite, you get the freeze of ice cream, the gooey sensation of caramel, the crackle of the chocolate coating and the crunch of the toppings. For a few bucks, it's the magnum opus of ice cream on a stick. blog.longboardsicecream.com, twitter.com/followthevan.
