Thanks to Ice (our Jack Russell Terrier), who took us for a walk, we came across a new ice cream truck (locations on their website). It’s obviously not your standard Good Humor truck. Van Leeuwen Ice Cream is gourmet ice cream, being green where possible, and the prices to match it.

The first taste of the strawberry ice cream didn’t impress me enough for $3.95 for a small (1 scoop) up to $7 for a large. It just didn’t have enough strawberry for me. Then Dan, who drives one of two trucks, told me his favorite was pistachio. Even though I’m generally not a fan of pistachio ice cream, this one actually tasted like real pistachio, and it was wonderful. Then I tasted the chocolate and I absolutely fell in love. I ordered a small (too much ice cream for my waistline lately) and suddenly $3.95 seemed like a completely reasonable price for the best chocolate ice cream I’ve ever had. It was rich, ultra smooth, and the perfect balance of sweetness, and the quality of the chocolate was evident.

Stay tuned, as I try some more flavors soon…
