After a grueling morning of back-to-back meetings, there is no sweeter feeling than to walk out of the office building and be welcomed by a bright turquoise truck toting delectable sweets.
The Street Sweets truck has been traveling around Manhattan since beginning of summer, but since I spend my 9-7 workdays locked up in my office (seriously, sometimes I don’t see the sun at all), this was my chance to finally sample the much tweeted and tooted dessert truck.
Featured among the menu selections are “create your own” croissants with creative fillings like nut butter, honey, and praline cream. There are also cookies, macaroons, cupcakes, and other yummies enough to fill up your calorie quota and happiness meter for the day. My eye was drawn to the Whoopie pies beckoning to me from the window pane. I bought a couple of each (chocolate and pumpkin) and…maybe it was my hunger, maybe it was my stress, maybe that Pumpkin Whoopie was just really good, because it was a “hallelujah” moment!
One of the owners (I assume) was the one who said “The Chocolate is delicious. The Pumpkin is magnificent!” He also graciously gave me a sampling of their candied ginger shortbread cookie. It was a burst of spiced ginger, warm and cozy on a breezy fall afternoon. I’m definitely going back for more next time!
To top it off, they use all natural ingredients, and run on energy efficient fuel – way to go for making us feel that somehow, eating sweets = doing good for the earth! I asked if they would make 50th St a regular location and they confirmed they’ll be at W 50th btwn 6th & 7th ave every Tuesday and Thursday.
