I thought I wouldn’t be able to visit any bay area food trucks in the two and a half days I was in town, but I was wrong! On Wednesday, I checked my twitter feed and saw that a new truck, Bomb Truck, was going to be in downtown San Jose. They had just debuted while I was out of town, so I was excited to get a chance to try their popsicles!
Being lactose intolerant, my first question was which pops were dairy free. There were only two that weren’t, and with the huge variety I had a difficult time making a decision. Eventually, I went with the nutella flavored pop.
It was tasty, and I enjoyed the addition of the little cup that fit around the popsicle. It made it so I didn’t feel pressured to eat the whole thing before my drive home because I could put it in my cup holder. In fact, I soon regretted not getting more than one popsicle as soon as I realized they were so easily transported. The truck recently tweeted that their pops can even be taken to go with dry ice! I think my favorite part, though, was the little bit that melted at the bottom of the cup. Sipping it after I was done brought me back to my childhood when drinking the remains of an Otter Pop was the highlight of the whole experience.
That evening, I found out via twitter that The Wow Truck was going to be featured on Eat Street, a show about food trucks I had just recently started watching. They were filming at Bernal Park with Treatbot serving too. Despite the lack of veg options at the Wow, I thought I’d go check out the scene and grab some Treatbot. I had been to these trucks before at this location, and I had never seen the line so long!
I was kinda glad I was only eating at Treatbot since the line was so long, but it was great to see so much support for a south bay food truck! I was also happy to have an opportunity to eat at a couple trucks before I drove down to LA today. Tomorrow the quest to hit up as many LA food trucks as possible begins!
