the Street Sweets truck recently while they were advertising their gelato cookie sandwich. It was hot out-I broke and got one even though I was mere minutes from my apartment and some Ronnybrook ice cream.
When I hit up the truck, they were only offering the chocolate or pumpkin tops from their whoopee pies with a medley of ice cream flavors. They do get exceptional props from me for using Ciao Bella Gelato. I went with chocolate and dulce de leche filling. My problem was with the tops, they're good for whoopee pies, but not as great as a chocolate chip cookie for a gelato sandwich. I enjoyed the dessert, though it did get very messy after two bites. They could place it in a dish like Peter Pan Bakery has learned with their sandwiches. Maybe I should have taken Amy's advice and seen if I could make a macarella sandwich, that would be awesome. But $3.75 for a sandwich I can hold in one hand and consists of three to four bites? I'm pretty sure I don't like that so much even if I adore the truck.
