It should come as no surprise to regular readers of this blog that even in winter, I love eating ice cream. Who doesn’t, amirite? Well after reading my friend Robyn’s post about the sundaes at Dessert Club, ChikaLicious (not to be confused with ChikaLicious Dessert Bar, across the street), I made a mental note to visit the place. I found myself in the East Village right before New Year’s, and I made it my business to try the Cookies & Cream sundae: vanilla bean soft serve with huge chunks of freshly baked cookies spread throughout. Yes, it was as good as it sounds.

Few weeks ago, The Big Gay Ice Cream truck had their big season end party over at the East Village. They were accompanied by NYC Cravings and Cupcake Stop. After work I went down to check all the trucks out. As I was walking over to Destination Bar, where the ice cream truck had parked in front of, I had this incredible idea. What if I combined a cupcake from Cupcake Stop with ice cream from the Big Gay Ice Cream? And top it off with something savory from Cravings?!
I had my heart set on getting the salty pimp from Doug and Bryan but then I realized that they had to turn the ice cream upside down and dip it into the chocolate. Didn’t think it would’ve been possible to do that if the ice cream was inside a cup. So……I ended up getting a triple chocolate cupcake and got the gobbler sundae over it! Bryan was super nice about it. The line for Cravings was super long so I didn’t bother lining up but they were serving onion pancake, they could’ve worked with the gobbler triple chocolate.
What can I say? It was crazily good.
