Taking on the Treats Truck One Treat at a Time: Chocolate Trucker

Chocolate Trucker Cookie

Before Brownie flew the coop, her and I met for a Biriyani Cart lunch. We chose to split a lamb, chicken and rice combo, then walk around the corner for a little treat. With no new specials, we picked out a regular item, the chocolate trucker. Little did we know what would happen next...

Seeing as it was the 45th Street location, the Midtown West line was a long as usual, and with time ticking away, we had to take turns waiting and eating. I ate first.

"Yes, Blondie?"
"Um, this is sort of spicy."
"My mouth is en fuego. I don't think I can feel my lips anymore."

We should have thought about it, but we didn't. That lamb/chicken/rice/hot-hot-hot sauce combo set both of our mouths aflame. Did we forfeit getting a treat? NEVER!!! Treat in hand, or on lap if you will, we ate and pondered.

Inside Chocolate Trucker Cookie

We could both taste the chocolate in the soft cookies, and equally found the trucker to be a welcome cooling sensation. The vanilla insides weren't strong enough to cut the spice, but having gotten this before, I remember it a mix between regular frosting and the crème in a certain sandwich cookie. As plain vanilla, and when eating regular non-spicy food, I find it a bit too sweet for my liking. Brownie believes there is more insides now than when the trucker first appeared on regular rotation. Whether or not this is a good thing, I do believe that the chewy and moist cookie top and bottom are actually the best part of all the truckers.
