Food trucks are an integral part of living in NYC. These aren’t merely generic lunch carts feeding us until the next real meal. New Yorkers have it down to a science pinpointing which truck can satisfy each course in their preconceived daily menus. I’m always on the lookout for unique and tasty mobile desserts. Awhile back, I kept hearing rave reviews about a Treats Truck making the rounds delivering to-die-for chocolate chip cookies, moist brownies, and other confections all across the City.
I was finally able to catch up with this mobile bakery truck, affectionately named Sugar, at 38th and 5th. Being a confirmed chocoholic, I immediately selected a deep dark chocolate brownie with chocolate chips. The flavor was definitely on a par with Godiva and not some watered down Hershey mix. Since I demolished it on site, I couldn’t possibly walk away empty handed. Dinner was around the corner and I needed dessert! Good excuse to grab a chocolate raspberry brownie with jam swirls on top and a Mexican chocolate brownie mixed with cinnamon and chocolate chips for the road. After finishing these off, I swore that I wouldnt waste any more time in the kitchen attempting to bake myself.
And just in case you feel a twinge of guilt over the indulgences you’ll find on the Treats Truck, know that its possible to stay on the wagon by ordering a cran almond crispy treat (rice cereal, whole wheat cereal with flax seeds, dried cranberries, almonds and marshmallow) washing it down with an organic soymilk. Extending that good vibe, 10% of the proceeds from their daily special are donated to charity and Sugar also does its part by running on clean Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
