The Most Perfect Coconut Ice Cream

Coconut Chip Ice Cream
If you've passed by a Van Leeuwen Ice Cream truck lately, you might have noticed a new flavor sign in their window for Coconut Chip. While some might have been burned by bad coconut ice cream before, I immediately took notice and stepped right up to try one scoop, not really sure what I was in for. I'm glad I took the chance.

Coconut Chip Ice Cream
Once you have your scoop, of course the first thought that comes to mind is "did he just give me mint chip?" Then you have your first spoonful and taste the little chunks of coconut. Next bite, it's mixed in with the small bits of dark Askinosie Chocolate--a small batch bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturer in Missouri. It's like a tropical chocolate chip ice cream. Wonderful.

Coconut Chip should be available in the Van Leeuwen shops and it's totally available on at least two of their trucks.
