I was walking up Fifth Ave in midtown yesterday, something that would usually be a pretty dreary exercise especially given the cold, rainy weather. Suddenly, there was a flash of silver ahead and the semi-mythical Treats Truck came into view, parked no 38th Street. Known for it's brownies and sandwich cookies, the truck has been cruising around NYC for a couple years now and getting rave reviews for it's sweet and reasonbly priced treats.
Unlike some other more stationary truck vendors I've blogged about, the Treats Truck really gets around town: the Village, the Slope, the Upper West Side, Midtown, Chelsea. To keep track, owner Ima Kim regularly updates her location current on the truck's Twitter feed. Now that's one use of Twitter which I can totally understand. Next time I need a brownie (which would be later this afternoon), I now know exactly where to find one!
