Big Gay Ice Cream truck stops in Raleigh Saturday
The New York City-based ice cream shop - named one of the best in the country - will bring its truck to in Raleigh this weekend.Posted — Updated
Big Gay Ice Cream offers fun takes on traditional flavors. Popular flavors include the Bea Arthur (vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche and crushed vanilla wafers) and the Salty Pimp (vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche, sea salt and chocolate chips). I am excited to try the Gobbler, which contains pie pieces and is served with either pumpkin butter and maple syrup or apple butter and bourbon butterscotch.
The company began as a seasonal food truck in 2009. The first stop opened in 2011 in NYC's East Village. Another location followed in the West Village the following year. Shops in Los Angeles and Philadelphia are expected to open by the end of the year.
Big Gay Ice Cream holds the distinction of being the only food truck invited to appear at the famed James Beard House.
