Big Gay Ice Cream Truck

How can you not love the idea of the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck? Best part is, it's headed down South as we speak...

Boyfriends, Douglas Quint and Bryan Petroff starting the Big Gay Ice Cream truck on a whim in 2009. It became so popular and so publicized, they opened up the Shop in the fall of 2011 in NYC's East Village and the following year in the West Village. 

Their claim to fame is their insanely delicious soft-serve, which they developed in collaboration with Ronnybrook Farm Dairy. Then, come their inventive flavor combinations. From left to right is the Salty Pimp (vanilla soft serve, dulce de leche with maldon salt dipped in chocolate), Bea Arthur (vanilla soft serve, Nilla wafers and dulce de leche) and Godzilla (vanilla soft serve coated with wasabi peanut dust). 

Then there's American Globs, made with crushed pretzels, sea salt and chocolate dip. How will I ever choose? All of my favorite things...

Here's your chance to try some Big Gay ice cream yourself with the BGIC 2014 Tour. If you live closeby, head out and support these guys and dig into some fantastic ice cream. The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck has recently been named both the most influential food truck and the best dessert truck in the country. I'm so there...
