So a little while ago I had a chance to try this for the first time. They were huge in 2015. The one thing that I have to give props to them for is their branding and social media. Honestly, I remember last summer, I couldn’t go a day on Instagram without seeing at least 4-5 posts a day of this ice cream. It’s a unique concept and they’ve definitely done well for themselves in terms of word-of-mouth and popularity.
They are a food truck, and can be found on the Street Food App in Edmonton. Currently they are at 13154 137 Avenue in the Staples Parking Lot). Their prices are a dollar more than last year (now 7$ versus last year’s 6$). Your flavours of ice cream include vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, banana, mango, avocado, coconut, thai tea, matcha green tea, pistachio, and coffee.
For Mix-ins (you get two), you can choose from strawberry, banana, mango, pineapple, blueberry, nutella, oreo, chocolate chips, mint chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, reese’s, M&Ms, rainbow sprinkles, marshmellows, and almonds. You can also get some premium mix-ins, which are cheesecake, ferrero rocher, and honeycomb, but they come at additional cost.
We had just come from dinner so we opted to only share one. I’ve really been on a matcha kick, and have been getting green tea everything, so naturally, we went with matcha green tea and chose pineapple and mango as our two mix-ins. Pretty tame, but also good for a first try.
Overall, it was a pretty decent ice cream. I’m not sure if I’d go all the way out of my way just to get this Ice cream. The line can be hit and miss sometimes, and I wouldn’t really want to wait up to 30-40 minutes just to get this ice cream, especially after driving 15-20 minutes just to get there. If it’s convenient, then sure why not, otherwise, it’s more of a unique experience that you should just try once, just so that you can say you did.
