CoolHaus Ice Cream Sandwiches are Now $6?!

CoolHaus Smores & Chocolate Sandwich
I've realized I officially need to live somewhere with central air-conditioning. The uneven hot and cold in my apartment only makes me want to leave and be amongst the people! Except it's been hot out, so within a block or two I need something to cool me down. But I can hold out for a few blocks if I know that an ice cream sandwich is in store, like when CoolHaus decides to park in Williamsburg. Even if said ice cream sandwich comes with a bit of sticker shock!

CoolHaus Smores & Chocolate Sandwich
I immediately got in line once the truck was spotted, taking the whole time thinking about the day's special cookie, smores with marshmallow drizzle, from Ovenly. I chose the decadent Molten Chocolate ice cream to sandwich in between the chewy, sweet cookies. Almost like a real s'more. Except this one cost $6! $6! At some point during the summer, CoolHaus raised their (already expensive) price a whole dollar. Don't get me wrong, the cookies are beyond delicious and the ice cream is a creamy delight, but this ice cream sandwich pricing is getting out of hand. The very next day, after being shocked at this, I spotted a $7 ice cream sandwich. I will be trying it all in the name of research (and to report back if it's worth it!)

Coolhaus' trucks can be found roaming the city, so be sure to check their Twitter if you want to try this pricey treat.

The good thing about coolhause is that it is always FREE--yes FREE--if you take down their skyscraper challenge in under 10 minutes. It's a joke. SO EASY. No need to EVER pay for coolhaus! Just do the challenge.
