AMAZING Ice Cream in NYC!  
So... on Monday, I did some exploring... mostly around Greenwich Village and found the little Cookie Shop I'd heard so much about... It's called Milk & Cookies and it's located in a small side street in Greenwich Village - if I didn't know to look for it, I would have totally passed it by!

It was a cute little shop that smelled of baking cookies (wonder what it would be like to have to work there with that smell all day long?? I'd be 5,000 pounds!) and had a variety of cookies, cookie mixes, and ice cream sandwiches to buy. :)

This was the "Overload" - dark chocolate ice cream between peanut butter chocolate chip cookies!
SOOOOO delicious!! :)

Outside "Milk & Cookies" - such a cute little shop! :)

I also bought a Moon Pie to take back with me... which is basically two chocolate cookies with vanilla filling. Really good!

And if you're on FB, you've seen this silly self-portrait I did of me
eating my ice cream sandwich! :)

Later that day (yes, it was the same day!) I went out in search of the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. :) I'd heard about him from several friends and really wanted to try it. The gentleman who runs the truck, renamed it the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck and serves WONDERFUL sundaes that have toppings that include sea salt, olive oil, etc. I went all the way down to Union Square to hunt down the truck. :)

I was so happy to find his truck!!

I ordered the Monday Sundae - which is a waffle cone, lined with nutella, with twist ice cream,
sprinkled with sea salt and topped with dulce de leche topping & whipped cream. SOOOO delicious!!

Here he is making my awesome, awesome creation!!!

I am SUCH a huge fan of his creations!! He even makes a chocolate ice cream sandwich with
bacon! (Which I couldn't eat, but Mark would just love!!!)

I have had TONS more wonderful eating here in NYC, but this one day was devoted to ice cream!! Seriously some of the best creations I have ever had!! :)

Yes, look for Milk and Cookies - it's such a cute little shop in the village! :D But yes, summertime would probably work out best. Though I have seen people eating ice cream when I was in NYC in the dead of winter! :D

Those ice cream sandwiches are incredible!! And because they were on peanut butter cookies, I thought of you! :D

Sounds heavenly!!

Looks like so much fun! I wonder if they make any rice or soy ice cream?
Sheri: Food!shutterbug93 on October 1st, 2009 04:13 am (UTC)
It was!! And I'm not sure if they make soy ice cream - though they should! I know lots of vegans in the city who would love to find a soy ice cream truck! :)

OMG I'm obsessed with these pictures and this ice cream. You need to pass me the addresses of both these places so I can go looking for this when I'm next in NYC!!!
Sheri: Food!shutterbug93 on October 2nd, 2009 12:42 pm (UTC)
Definitely will! You will love them both, Shawne!! Too bad that the ice cream truck is only seasonal (only during the summer) and he'll go out for the last time on the 8th of October because it's just getting too cold for ice cream... for me, it's NEVER too cold!) But you should definitely go to Milk & Cookies in Greenwich Village! SOOO good! :)
