With toppings like wasabi pea dust, cayenne pepper, and Elderflower syrup, this truck is definitely not your childhood Mister Softee.
So when we heard that today (Fri., Oct 9) was its last day on the street for the season, we knew we had to find this year's Vendy Award's 1st ever double nominee.
We headed down to Union Square and easily found the revamped Mister Softee truck. Between the premium toppings ($1 extra), special sundaes ($6), and regular cones/cups ($3), what to order was a difficult decision to make.
Only in New York! We ended up choosing a Vanilla ice cream cup with Olive Oil and Sea Salt on top - and enjoyed it across the street from a motorized red pump. We've enjoyed the Olive Oil gelato from Babbo and this version was a much more casual take on it.
Riding in style!
The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck will be found during the day until 6pm at Union Sq West and 17th St. in NYC.
