B&B Hit Up The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck

Vanilla Soft Serve with Dulce de Leche and Nilla Wafers from the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck
Blondie and I were both headed out the door at the same time for lunch yesterday. She had no plans. I had big ones. Big Gay Ice Cream Truck plans that is...

Ever since Blondie and I read about the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck and their awesome soft serve toppings on Serious Eats, we've been dying to check it out and lunch yesterday was our first opportunity.

Things to know about The BGICT:

1) Much like Superman masquerades as your everyday joe, Clark Kent, the BGICT operates out of a standard issue Mister Softee truck. Keep track of their location on twitter and look with the Mister Softee with the BGICT sign on the side.

2) Unlike 99% of the Mister Softee trucks in the city they have the prices listed. Hooray! It's $3 for a soft serve cone or cup with standard toppings included. Add $1 if you want fancy toppings like dulce de leche, cayenne, sriracha, maple syrup, and Nilla wafers. It's $5 if you want a shake.

3) Doug Quint, the BGIC man is hilarious and awesome. He will totally make your day.

I got the vanilla soft serve in a cone with crushed Nilla wafers and dulce de leche. $4 and absolutely delicious. My love for Mister Softee vanilla soft serve is well documented and the BGICT's toppings line up takes soft serve to the next level.

Blondie went for the vanilla soft served stuffed ice cream sandwich slathered with Nutella. Also, $4 and let's face it, what isn't made better with a good slathering of Nutella?

Nutella Ice Cream Sandwich

I've heard that sea salt, and bacon might be offered as toppings--all I can say is, please, please bacon! And chocolate covered bacon! Oooh, or how about dark chocolate dip with dulce de leche and sea salt? Mmmmmm. Salted caramel and chocolate. I hope it's a very long summer...

Doug and the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck!

Hi Justin - just wanted to clarify that if we move locations it would be because of an event. We are usually out till 11 & post our locations online & twitter. Look forward to having you stop by!

I just stumbled on your blog and wanted to say that looks amazing! And quite a lot of ice cream for less than $5. Yum!

This is out of control, toppings-wise. I have never seen such a thing. Hmmm. Food for thought. Oops, sorry about the pun.

This picture is ridiculous. I keep coming back to it and drooling! It's like food porn. Seriously. You girls need to quit it!
