Taking on the Treats Truck, One Treat at a Time: More Halloween Specials

Treats Truck Halloween Treats
With all those various Halloween special treats available, we had to return and try some more, didn't we?

Yummy Halloween Treats
This round was a vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting, and a big pumpkin sugar cookie for me; it just looked so beautiful, I had to have one. Brownie and I split the cupcake and found the vanilla to be a little drier than the chocolate cake, but the frosting was sweet and creamy. If given the choice, we'd probably stick to the chocolate cake with either vanilla or chocolate frosting.

After eating that at lunch, I waited until around 3:15 to break out the pumpkin cookie, much to the delight of my desk-mate. I have to say, this is my new favorite treat from the truck; the icing was spot-on, creamy and sweet, but not grainy. The cookie was chewy and buttery; the pumpkin disappeared fast and left me smiling and satisfied. Certifiably delicious!!

I've had two of the pumpkin cookies, they are just too cute and mighty tasty! I'll be sad to see them go.. here's hoping she'll replace them with some lovely holiday-decorated treats.
